HOUSTON (ICIS)--Methanol and ammonia plants in Trinidad and Tobago that shut down because of a power outage late last week should be operating or in the process of restarting today, a source at the state-owned utility said on Monday.
“All of them should be online by tonight,” Mohammed said on Monday. “A couple of plants are still down, but that’s of their own accord. They wanted to maybe do something extra as a result of this.”
Mohammed said he did not know specifically which plants were still down. Some ammonia and methanol plants began restarting on Friday, according to sources close to the plants.
The island’s 11 ammonia and seven methanol plants shut down on 15 November, because of an interruption in power after NGC experienced high levels of liquids in its natural gas supply to the Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (TTEC).
