Nutrien temporarily shutters largest Pt Lisas plant


Nutrien has temporarily shuttered its second-largest ammonia production facility, the PCS 02 plant in Point Lisas, citing economic challenges.

Nutrien Trinidad managing director Ian Walcott confirmed to Newsday that the plant will be shuttered for at least three months.

Workers will not be affected, he added, saying at this time the company “does not anticipate any impact to Nutrien headcount.”

The company, headquartered in Canada, has five plants in Trinidad, but Walcott said only P2 will be shuttered while all the rest operate at full rate.
