ZAGREB (Croatia), September 13 (SeeNews) - Croatian fertiliser producer Petrokemija [ZSE:PTKM] said on Thursday its urea and ammonia plants have abruptly shut down due to a technical fault.

The plants stopped working on Tuesday morning when a gas pressure reduction and measuring station owned by state-owned gas transmission system operator Plinacro suffered a malfunction, Petrokemija said in a Zagreb bourse filing.

"After several attempts to normalise the work of the plants, halted by the failure in the Plinacro gas supply system, a failure on the ammonia plant was reported that will delay the work of the ammonia and urea plants," Petrokemija said.

The company expects to restart production at the two plants in the middle of next week following the necessary repairs.

The Croatian state controls a stake of 79.85% in Petrokemija.
