SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Oman’s Salalah Methanol Co (SMC) plans to run its 3,125 tonne/day methanol plant in Salalah without shutting it for maintenance for the rest of this year, a company source said on Wednesday.

The plant is currently running at 100% capacity, the source added.

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.

Other methanol producers in the same country include Oman Methanol.
