SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Oman’s Salalah Methanol Co (SMC) will shut its 3,125 tonne/day methanol plant in Salalah for a 50-day scheduled turnaround in the second quarter of 2014, a company source said on Monday.
Market participants said that this should not have any significant effect on supply as it is a planned maintenance shutdown.
The plant’s methanol is produced using feedstock natural gas, supplied by Oman’s Ministry of Oil and Gas through the country’s pipeline systems.
Other methanol producers in the country include Oman Methanol.
