SINGAPORE (ICIS)--?xml:namespace>China’s Yanzhou Coal Mining has shut its 600,000 tonne/year methanol unit at Yulin in Shaanxi for normal maintenance, a company official said on Tuesday.
The company will shut the plant for 20 days or a month, the source added.
The reduction in methanol supply in the domestic market is not expected to affect the domestic market because of the flagging demand, a market player said.
Methanol spot prices in Shaanxi were at yuan (CNY) 2,180-2,350/tonne ($343-369/tonne) on 12 June, compared with CNY2,250-2,400/tonne on 11 June, according to Chemease, an ICIS service in China.
Yanzhou Coal Mining is a Shanghai-listed company owned by Yankuang Group.
