SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Brunei Methanol Co (BMC) is planning to begin a two-to-three week turnaround at its 850,000 tonne/year methanol plant at Sungai Liang Industrial Park in the second half of September, a company source said on Monday.
The maintenance should not have any impact on supply, as BMC is planning to build up its inventories in August, said the source.
“The plant is currently running at 95%,” the source said.
BMC is a joint venture between Mitsubishi Gas Chemical (MGC), ITOCHU and Petroleum Brunei. MGC holds a 50% stake in the company, while the remaining 50% share is equally held by ITOCHU and Petroleum Brunei.
