Speaking Session with Nexant's Dimitrios Dimitriou: Changes In Nitrogen Fertilizer Cost Position - A Flatter Cost Curve

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016 at 9:45am

Lower energy prices have helped to cut nitrogen fertilizer production costs but also affected margins and the global floor price. Lower nitrogen prices have been felt most strongly by those producers who already have natural gas supply agreements in place which fix the price they pay for natural gas. This has closed the profitability gap between lowest and highest cost nitrogen producers, resulting in a flatter overall cost curve for the industry. Nexant’s Dr Dimitrios Dimitriou will present the complex interplay between global oil pricing, nitrogen industry costs and other market drivers that is responsible for the flatter cost curve experienced.
