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.
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.
