Yara Pilbara Nitrates

Yara is the operator of Yara Pilbara Nitrates Pty Ltd (YPNPL), a joint venture between Yara (50%) and Orica (50%).

YPNPL is in the process of constructing a technical ammonium nitrate (TAN) facility adjacent to Yara Pilbara’s existing liquid ammonia plant on the Burrup Peninsula. When commissioned the TAN Plant will be owned by Yara Pilbara Nitrates Pty Ltd, operated by Yara International ASA and marketed by Orica Mining Services Pilbara (OMSP), a joint venture operated by Orica.

The product manufactured at the TAN plant will be distributed into the local Pilbara market by OMSP.

Environmental Reports

In previous years, Yara Pilbara has contributed to the WA Government's Rock Art monitoring program. This program was not conducted in 2017, so Yara contracted independent experts to conduct monitoring, with the active involvement of Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation. This approach was approved by the Commonwealth Minister for the Environment. 

The analysis of the monitoring data was managed by the WA Department of Water and Environmental Regulation (DWER).
