SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Brunei Methanol Co (BMC) plans to resume production at its 850,000 tonne/year methanol plant in Sungai Liang Industrial Park only in December this year, a company source said on Friday.

“It [the restart] might be in December,” the source said.

The methanol plant was taken off line in May this year for scheduled maintenance.

BMC had expected to restart the plant in the first half of November after postponing it from end-October, but decided that more time was needed for maintenance, the source said.

BMC is a joint venture between Japanese company Mitsubishi Gas Chemical (50%), Japan’s trading firm Itochu Corp (25%) and state-owned oil firm Petroleum Brunei.
