ENID (AP) — Kansas-based Koch Industries has announced plans to build a new fertilizer plant at its Koch Nitrogen facility in Enid.

Koch said in a news release Wednesday that it will invest $1 billion and increase fertilizer production at the facility by more than 1 million tons per year. The company says construction is expected to begin during the fourth quarter of 2014 and the plant is to be operational in 2016.

Koch estimates the project will create 500 to 800 construction jobs and the company says it expects to hire 20 to 30 new employees for the plant.
