Temporary surcharge applied to Industrial products

Oslo, September 24, 2021:  The President of Yara Industrial Solutions, Jorge Noval, has stated that further to the announcement on September 17th regarding the curtailment of ammonia production due to increased natural gas prices, Yara reiterates its commitment to continuing supplies wherever possible.

However, to secure the continued supply of key products for our Industrial Customers in Europe, we need to implement a temporary surcharge on the sales prices of the following products:

  • NH3 +200 EUR/ton
  • Urea +180 EUR/ton
  • Nitric Acid +60 EUR/ton

For our Air1 – AdBlue® by Yara end-product, the surcharge equates to 58 EUR/ton, equivalent to EUR 6,3c per liter.

“We are committed to maintaining reliable supplies to our customers wherever possible. These temporary price surcharges are necessary to cover costs,” says Noval.

There will also be a temporary suspension of all minimum take-or-pay and exclusive supply obligations.

The above measures will take effect as per October 1st, 2021 and remain in place until further notice. Yara will continue to monitor the situation closely and review the above measures on a monthly basis.
