SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Ar-Razi Saudi Methanol is running its 1.7m tonne/year No 5 methanol plant in Al-Jubail at full capacity after restarting the unit last week, a source from one of the company’s stakeholders said on Thursday.

The plant was taken off line in early November 2014 for maintenance.

The company has four other methanol plants at the site. It was unclear yet which of these plants will undergo scheduled maintenance sometime in July to September this year, the source said.

Ar-Razi Saudi Methanol’s five methanol plants have a combined capacity of 4.9m tonnes/year.

The company is a 50:50 joint venture between SABIC and a Japanese consortium led by Mitsubishi Gas Chemical.
