SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Oman’s Salalah Methanol Co (SMC) has shut its 3,125 tonne/day methanol plant in Salalah for maintenance because of an unplanned outage this week, a company source said on Thursday.
The plant was taken off line on 23 April and repairs might take two to three weeks, the source added.
The facility’s methanol is produced using feedstock natural gas, which is supplied by Oman’s Ministry of Oil and Gas through the country’s pipeline systems.
Other methanol producers in the country include Oman Methanol.
