The urea and ammonia plant has at least four damaged parts: three turbines and a nitrogen generator. Repairing them will take nine months and some $26 million. In the meantime, the country has gone from being an exporter to an importer of the fertilizer. Hydrocarbon Minister Franklin Molina estimates that the economic damage caused by the plant’s closure over a year ago is 200 million dollars.
