September Industry Breaking News

Industry News – U.S. Gulf: NOLA granular urea barges for September were reported to have traded at $518-$552/st FOB, up from the prior week’s $425-$495/st FOB. Sources reported a very thin market, with some saying NOLA barge supplies were already tight before Hurricane Ida. The storm brought with it the idling of CF’s major Donaldsonville complex and the CF Sept. 3 declaration of force majeure, though by Sept. 9 the company reported it was restarting ammonia production at the complex, with urea and other products to follow. Other sources cited logistics problems, with reports of some barges damaged and speculation that others may have sunk. There was also a question as to when import vessels could be offloaded as empty barges were hard to find, with many filled with grain and unable to unload at NOLA grain terminals. In general, sources expected it would take a while for both production and logistics to return to normal. Sources were more hopeful for October. Those barges were reported to be trading in the $465- $490/st FOB.
