SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Brunei Methanol Co (BMC) is ramping up production at its 850,000 tonne/year methanol plant at Sungai Liang Industrial Park that had a two-day outage late last week, a company source said on Friday, without providing the plant's current run rate.
The unit was shut on 7-8 February because of shortage of feedstock natural gas, the source said.
Brunei Methanol is a joint venture between Japan’s Mitsubishi Gas Chemical (MGC), Japan’s ITOCHU, and state-owned Petroleum Brunei.
MGC holds a 50% stake in BMC, while the other 50% share is held equally by ITOCHU and Petroleum Brunei.
