HOUSTON (ICIS)--The restart of the M5000 methanol plant in Trinidad has been pushed back to early next week, Southern Chemical (SCC) said on Thursday.

The 1.9m tonne/year unit went down about 10 April for a maintenance turnaround that was expected to last three weeks. But its expected restart at the end of April was pushed back because of an unexplained delay, SCC said on 27 April.

SCC said on Thursday said the plant had a “slight delay” and would restart early next week.

The plant is owned and operated by Methanol Holdings (Trinidad) Limited (MHTL). SCC is the North American marketer for MHTL.
