Vertically integrated
to maximise cost

By increasing the control we have throughout our vertically integrated business we reduce inefficiencies, capture margins, and ensure the sustainability of our business.

Raw Materials

Our upstream hydrocarbons and mining operations form the backbone of our business model.
this access to lower-cost raw materials enhances and consolidates our global competitiveness.

Natural gas

Natural gas is the primary raw material used to produce ammonia, the main building-block for nitrogen-based fertilisers. our oil and gas operations are designed to boost our ammonia gas efficiency and strengthen our cost advantages. our production capacity currently meets up to 25% of our total annual gas needs.

Phosphate rock

We mine magnetite-apatite ore, which is high quality phosphate rock, from our open-pit mining operations at Kovdorskiy GOK. From there, we extract apatite concentrate from the ore for use as a raw material to produce phosphate-based fertilisers. We also extract baddeleyite concentrate and produce iron ore concentrate which are sold externally as co-products of apatite mining.

Potash

We are in the process of developing potash deposits which will make us one of only four fertilizer producers in the world with a significant presence in all three primary nutrient segments.

Production

Our powerful global distribution network provides us with the flexibility to channel volumes to the markets offering the highest netbacks. In addition to our trading arms in the US, Switzerland and Brazil, EuroChem agro has a focus on major customers in agriculture and special crops such as fruits, vegetables and wine-grapes. We also have storage facilities in Russia, the CIS, Europe, North America and Mexico allowing us to store product so as to maximize sales in times of high demand.

Distribution

We have built a network of 25 distribution centres in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus, and take an advisory approach in building relationships with farmers to help increase crop yields, rather than simply advocating higher fertilizer consumption.
