Methanol Plant Planned in Marcellus Shale Region

May 2016, Vol. 243, No. 5

Primus Green Energy plans to deliver a 160 measured tons per day (MT/d) methanol plant to a manufacturing site in the Marcellus Shale. Production from the plant is scheduled to begin in 2017 for regional distribution, with three additional trains added in coming years, which are expected to increase capacity to 640 MT/d.

Primus’ standardized modular GTL systems will convert low-cost Marcellus feedstock into methanol locally, saving both production and transportation costs. Plans also call for the delivery of up to four additional methanol plants in other North American regional markets with capacities ranging from 160 MT/d to 640 MT/d.
