Last week sources said the latest cutback was expected to end by now. But methanol sources on Monday said the gas utility in Trinidad still had not said when it would end.
“So I assume they really don’t know at this juncture,” one source said.
Officials at National Gas, the state-owned utility in Trinidad, did not return calls immediately.
Natural gas supplies to methanol, ammonia and other producers at the Point Lisas Industrial Complex have been sporadic for most of 2011 because of the gas company’s problems with offshore platforms.
Producers said in late July that natural gas deliveries to methanol and ammonia producers in Trinidad were being cut by 20-30% for August.
