Recent News & Updates
Intrepid Potash: The Table Is Set For A Strong 2022
Intrepid Potash had strong Q2 earnings and solid full-year guidance. The company has raised potash and TRIO prices twice since June; Q1 2022 potash pricing is on track to be up $200/ton over summer 2021 pricing. The Oilfield Solutions segment is hurt by a recent court ruling, but the company's water recycling capacity will be over 200,000 barrels a day by Q1 2022. The bulk of Intrepid's PPP loan was forgiven in Q2; by the end of August, the company will be completely debt-free. 2022 will be the year everything comes together for Intrepid Potash.
