SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Malaysia’s PETRONAS Chemicals Group (PCG) has kept its 1.7m tonne/year No 2 methanol plant in Labuan shut, delaying resumption of operations because of equipment issues, a company source said on Friday.
The plant was taken off line on 15 July for maintenance and was supposed to be restarted in end-July.
The company hopes to resolve the issues as soon as possible, the source said, but could not give an estimate on the restart date.
PCG also has a 660,000 tonne/year No 1 methanol unit at the site.
The company has plans to conduct maintenance at the two methanol units in September.
