The Namrup Fertilizer Complex, renamed as Brahmputra Valley Fertilizer Corporation Limited after bifurcation from erstwhile Hindustan Fertilizer Corporation Limited w.e.f. 1st April 2002 located on the bank of the river Dilli in the south-western border of Dibrugarh District in Assam is the first factory of its kind in India to use associated natural gas as basic raw material for producing nitrogenous fertilizer .
Till the beginning of sixties, Namrup a sleepy village ,was little known to the rest of the country. Discovery of oil and natural gas in Naharkatiya region promoted a serious thinking on proper utilization of gas which had to be otherwise to be flared up.
Consequent upon the recommendation of M/S. Snodgrass Associates of USA suggesting utilization of this hidden treasure to produce a large number of utilities including chemical fertilizers and electricity, the then Ministry of Mines and Fuel appointed a Committee headed by Shri S S Khera, ICS and based on its broad recommendation in respect of possible use of natural gas, a Technical Committee under the Chairmanship of Dr. G P Kane further studied the possibilities of setting up a fertilizer plant in Assam while the Central Water and Power Commission was entrusted to explore the scope of setting up a power project based on this resource .
The Kane Committee, after making detailed techno-economic study, recommended a fertilizer factory to be located at Namrup .Needless to say that ,Central Water and Power Commission too recommended favourably resulting in the setting-up of Thermal Power Plant within the striking distance from the fertilizer factory at Namrup.
