SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China’s Shanghai Coking & Chemical is running its coal-based methanol plants at Wujing in Shanghai at 50-60% capacity because of an outage, a company source said on Wednesday.

The company operates two methanol plants at the same site. One of them has a capacity of 350,000 tonnes/year and the other has a capacity of 450,000 tonnes/year.

“It might take two weeks for the issue to be resolved. I don’t really know what the problem is,” the source said.

Other methanol producers in China include China National Offshore Oil Corp (CNOOC) and Boyuan United Chemical.
