SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Brunei Methanol Co (BMC) is planning to restart its 850,000 tonne/year methanol plant at Sungai Liang Industrial Park in July after scheduled maintenance, a company source said on Monday.

The plant was shut in May for maintenance for 40-50 days. The company source said there might be some delay in the restart but declined to name the reason.

BMC is a joint venture between Japanese companies Mitsubishi Gas Chemical (MGC) and ITOCHU as well as state-owned oil firm Petroleum Brunei.

MGC holds a 50% stake in BMC, while the remaining share is held equally by ITOCHU and Petroleum Brunei.
