Future Plans

Plans and strategic thinking are among the major factors of continuous success achieved by JPMC as its future plans seek to reduce costs and increase the production capacity as well as diversifying the exports, improving the infrastructure, sustaining the assets, and supporting the socio-economic and environmental development as well as improving the customer experience, reinforcing the core values, developing the human resources, and improving the institutional performance.

The Company works on increasing and improving the quality of products at the existing industrial enterprises via completion of the upgrade processes of its plants on all sites of operation in addition to increasing their production capacity and modifying the manufacturing methods in line with the requirements of environment conservation.

Within the framework of the Company’s plans to increase production, diversify exports of finished and intermediate phosphate products, fertilizers, phosphoric acid, and aluminum fluoride as well as providing the needs of joint ventures, and industrial facilities of water. The Company drilled 6 wells in Eshidiya with a production capacity of 10 million cubic meters/year. In addition, the Company is in the process of drilling (5) new wells in AlJafr area with a production capacity of 4 million cubic meters per year. There are other facilities such as the water network, a cooling tower for hot water, and the required pumping stations, the control systems, and providing the project with electric power in addition to the road network needed in order to provide for the current and future needs of the Company.


Jordan Phosphate Mines Company owns a sea port to export phosphate in execution of the agreement of development and operation concluded with Aqaba Development Company (ADC)/Aqaba Special Economic Zone (ASEZA). The phosphate export terminal is located in the industrial zone on the southern beach of Aqaba city. The handling volume in the terminal is 6 million tons/year. It is designed to help the different kinds of vessels to dock with loads of 5-100 thousand tons. In addition, JPMC holds 50% of the Jordan Industrial Ports Company – a private shareholding company represented by JPMC and Arab Potash Company according to the agreement concluded between the two companies. Via this company, the products of DAP, MOP, NPKs, concentrated phosphoric acid are exported and the raw materials needed to manufacture fertilizers and their several derivatives are imported including ammonia and sulfur in addition to fulfilling the needs of associate and subsidiary companies.

Under the strategic plan of the Company aimed at increasing the production capacity, diversifying the finished and intermediate products of fertilizers vertically and in complementarity with the mining works in order to enhance the value added of the Company products and help it to be resilient in dealing with the markets, there are several projects to produce phosphoric acid, aluminum fluoride and floating units. The Company is also working on implementing several diversified environmental, industrial and logistic projects.


Environmental Projects:
  1. The establishment of a plant to produce aluminum fluoride with a production capacity of 25 thousand tons/year in order to use the FSA produced by JIFCO and IJC under a partnership between JPMC and the Indian Company Alufloride with a cost estimated at USD 30 million. The company has been registered and the production of this project is expected to start during the last quarter of 2024.
  2. The project of a treatment plant of the water used in washing the phosphate at Eshidiya with the local company Engicon to treat and recycle 9000 cubic meters per day. This project is a BOT and it is expected to be completed at the end of 2024. The project cost is estimated at USD 10 million.
  3. The project of phosphate floating with the Ideal Company (AlMethaliah) using a design by the American Company (Jacop) with a production capacity of (2) million tons/year. The project will help make use of the stored phosphate reject on a BOT basis. The civil works of the project have already started and it is expected to be completed by the end of the third quarter of 2024. The project cost is estimated at USD 85 million.
  4. The gypsum mountain (pile) at the Industrial Complex in Aqaba is now being prepared by JPMC staff with a joint study between JPMC and ASEZA being the best solution to remove the environmental impact in line with ASEZA vision to provide recreational sites and green landscapes as a qualitative value added for the tourism in Aqaba. With efforts by ASEZA, FAO joined this project of greening the whole gypsum mountain based on scientific principles of specialized research. It is expected to complete this project during the three coming years. One million Jordanian Dinars have been earmarked for this purpose.
  5. The Company has already started with the technical study to upgrade the ammonia tanks at the Industrial Complex/Aqaba to a double wall and double integrity. The design and execution works of the tanks are expected to take 18 months as of the date of completion of the current works of Dar AlHandasa. The cost of construction a tank is expected to be 35 million US Dollar. At present, a water dome is being designed for the present ammonia tanks at the highest level of safety parameters in order to respond to contingent cases. 


Projects under Study:
  1. The Phosphorus Yellow Project using the ore phosphate in partnership with one of the Indian specialized companies in this field. The energy cost is a major challenge confronting the execution of this project.
  2. The NPK project as a joint venture with Petrokimia Gresik PKG (Indonesia) with a production capacity of 300 thousand tons/year. The estimated cost of the project is USD 120 million.
  3. The MKP, SSP, and TSP project and MAP Technical in partnership with JPMC and Arab Potash Company. The memos of understanding have been signed by the two companies for this purpose; and technical committees were created by both parties to study these projects.
  4. The phosphoric acid project in Aqaba in partnership with Deepak (India) with a production capacity of 300 thousand tons/year using the low-grade phosphate ore. The initial amount of the project is USD 400 million.
  5. Phosphoric acid project in partnership with Transpet (Turkey) in Eshidiya with a production capacity of 224 thousand tons/year using the low-grade Jordanian phosphate. The amount of the project is USD 250 million, approximately.
  6. The Green Park project will be implemented on 300 hectares to produce the phosphate fertilizers in partnership with the international specialized agencies. JPMC provides the infrastructure for these projects to promote investment in this area.
  7. The establishment of a factory for the animal feed using the phosphoric acid produced by JPMC with Sunokrot Group for a cost estimated at USD 40 million.
  8. The establishment of a plant to produce the bentonite sulfur fertilizer for a total amount of USD 15 million. This is a new product of sulfuric fertilizers.
Logistics Projects:
  1. Establishment of depots to store the phosphate in Aqaba with a capacity of 500 thousand additional tons in order to respond to the increasing demand for phosphate and to create a sufficient stock to respond to contingencies. The cost is about USD 80 million.
  2. The extension of the phosphate port in order to fulfill the increasing demand for the phosphate ore for a cost of USD 30 million, approximately.
  3. Desalination of the sea water to fulfill the needs of JPMC plants of industrial water with a capacity estimated at 4 million cubic meters/year. At present, discussions are taking place with an international companies which is a pioneer in this domain and on a BOT basis.

JPMC is witnessing a positive qualitative change at the macro level of performance; which enables the Company to make profit according to elements that help it achieve its role in the national economy and development. The Company has plans underway for extension via securing new marketing channels that will contribute to increasing the annual production to more than 11 million tons.
