SYRIA - Industrial Uses.

Gas utilisation in industry, both as feedstock and as fuel, began in 1988, mainly as a substitute for naphtha in the production of ammonia and urea. Plans are under way to set up new fertiliser production units, as gas resources continue to be developed.

The nitrogen fertiliser plant in Homs is designed to consume 0.943 tons of naphtha for every one ton of ammonia produced. The capacity of the ammonia units is 1,000 tons/day, modified in 1988 to operate on natural gas (see details of this and other fertiliser plants in Downstream Trends No. 11).
