June 3 (Reuters) - Canadian fertilizer company Agrium Inc said on Monday that it was suspending engineering work on a proposed $3 billion nitrogen plant in the United States and would focus on finding a strategic partner and gas contract for the project.

The Calgary, Alberta-based company said it expected to decide on whether to proceed with another project, the expansion of its Borger, Texas plant, in the second half of 2013.
