Curtailments stemming from work being done on offshore platforms have been a persistent issue for petrochemical producers at the Point Lisas Industrial Estate in Trinidad for the past two years. The latest round began in mid-April.
A statement issued by the National Gas Co on Friday said the platform work was expected to be finished by 18 May, “with supply expected to return to regular levels thereafter.”
March methanol production in Trinidad declined 17% year on year to 437,140 tonnes, according to the latest data released this week by the country’s energy ministry.
But in the first three months of 2013, Trinidad’s methanol production increased slightly, to 1.42m tonnes, up by 1% over 1.40m tonnes in the same period of 2012.
