SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Oman’s Salalah Methanol Company (SMC) plans to restart its methanol plant at Salalah this weekend following an unplanned shutdown, a company source said on Wednesday.
The plant, which has a nameplate capacity of 1.3m tonnes/year, was shut early last week because of an unspecified technical issue.
The plant is a joint venture between Oman Oil and Oman Energy Trading.
Feedstock for the production of methanol at the facility is natural gas, which is supplied by Oman’s Ministry of Oil and Gas through the country’s pipeline systems.
