Yara International ASA said Friday that it had curtailed ammonia production due to increased natural-gas prices. Here's what the Norway-based chemical company said:

 

On ammonia margins:

"Record high natural gas prices in Europe are impacting ammonia production margins, and as a result Yara is curtailing production at a number of its plants."

 

On production:

"Including optimization of ongoing maintenance, Yara will by next week have curtailed around 40% of its European ammonia production capacity. Yara will continue to monitor the situation, with the objective to keep supplying customers but curtailing production where necessary."
