Prilled Urea Production from Natural Gas
(1) "Ammonia", Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology, 5th edition (2) "Urea," Ullmann's Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemistry, 2010;

This report presents an up-to-date, detailed cost analysis of Urea production from natural gas via two integrated processes: conversion of natural gas to ammonia, followed by Urea synthesis from the ammonia generated. The ammonia process examined is similar to KBR Purifier technology and Urea synthesis is similar to Saipem's (formerly Snamprogetti) self-stripping process. In the integrated production portrayed, the ammonia formed is reacted with carbon dioxide, recovered from the ammonia synthesis, to form ammonium carbamate intermediate, further converted to Urea. The non-converted carbamate is stripped from the Urea solution by excess ammonia and decomposed back to ammonia and carbon dioxide, which are recycled. After concentration and prilling steps, Urea Prills are obtained as final product.

Urea E31A
This report examines the economics of Prilled Urea manufacturing from natural gas in an industrial complex located in the United States. Initially, natural gas is converted to syngas by steam and autothermal reforming. The syngas is mixed with nitrogen to produce ammonia. The ammonia formed is reacted with carbon dioxide, to form urea via ammonium carbamate.
