Founded in 1969 as a joint venture between the Government of Qatar and a number of foreign shareholders, QAFCO has evolved steadily over the past five decades as a world-class fertilizer producer. The country’s first large-scale venture in the petrochemical sector, QAFCO was established to diversify the economy and utilize the nation’s enormous gas reserve. QAFCO is currently owned 75% by Industries Qatar (IQ) and 25% by Yara Netherland.
With 6 world-class plants producing a sizable annual capacity of 3.8 million MT of ammonia and 5.6 million MT of urea, QAFCO stands proudly as the world’s largest single-site exporter of urea with up to 14% share of the world supply. QAFCO is strongly committed to operating its assets safely, efficiently and in an environmentally responsible manner to produce high quality Ammonia and Urea.
Continuing with its commitment to excellence, QAFCO aims to be the largest producer of urea in the world by 2030, driving towards a greener earth.
