Ruined pipes and machineries have been replaced by new one. KFCL Management wants to starts urea production in shortest possible time. All the preparations for the same are being done like supply of Naphtha with no intruptions and Government has agreed for that. The Government has asked the KFCL (DUNCANS) to modified its urea production plant from naphtha based to gas based within 3 years as a special case.
Naphtha is the material used as feedstock for the urea production. Government wants that all urea ptoducers should convert themselves from urea based to gas based as soon as possible as it has to pay more subsidy to naphtha based urea ptoducers.
