A new Nitrogen Fertilizer plant may soon be operating near Spirtwood North Dakota.
Wednesday, CHS Inc. is announcing its plans to build a $1.2 billion Nitrogen Fertilizer manufacturing plant.
Governor Jack Dalrymple says that it's a great idea, considering the state has natural gas that's worth about two dollars per 1,000 cubic feet, and it could be made into anhydrous ammonia which is worth 800 dollars per ton.
"For us to have this commitment made by CHS I think is an extra win win deal, because they represent so many farmers and so many cooperative members in the state of North Dakota," Governor Jack Dalrymple said.
The plant will employ about 100 to 150 employees and the company is hoping to have the facility online by 2016.
