Two plants are owned by Trinidad Nitrogen Co Ltd (Tringen), a strong and successful joint venture partnership between Yara and the Government of Trinidad and Tobago. The third plant is owned by Yara International which also manages and operates the site.

Nearly all of the site’s annual production of 1.3 million metric tons (99 percent) is exported. This is a significant portion of Trinidad and Tobago’s total export, contributing to making Trinidad and Tobago the world’s leading exporter of ammonia.
