SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Guanghui Energy is ready to restart its methanol/dimethyl ether (DME)/liquefied natural gas (LNG) complex at Hami in China’s Xinjiang province more than three months after operations were shut by a fire, the company said on Thursday.
The complex, which can produce 1.2m tonnes/year of methanol, 800,000 tonnes/year of DME and 500 million cubic metres (mcm)/year of LNG, was shut on 6 April.
The company has repaired and upgraded the damaged units, while one gasification unit was successfully restarted on 22 June, it said in a filing to the Shanghai Stock Exchange.
Guanghui Energy is currently awaiting regulatory approvals before resuming production at the whole complex, it said.
