HOUSTON (ICIS)--Methanol plants in Trinidad and Tobago owned by Methanol Holdings (Trinidad) Limited (MHTL) should be restarted by Wednesday afternoon, a source close to the company said on Tuesday.
The plants began restarting over the weekend, following a power outage late last week that shut down most of the methanol and ammonia plants at Trinidad’s Point Lisas Industrial Complex.
A source at the state-owned National Gas Company (NGC) notified all of the plants at Point Lisas on Sunday that they could begin restarting. MHTL owns five plants in Trinidad.
Spot prices receded a little on Tuesday, at 127-128 cents/gal, after touching 130 cents/gal late last week, sources said.
