Fueled primarily by natural gas sourced from Trinidad and Tobago, the plant has an annual production capacity of one million tons of methanol and 20,000 tons of di-methyl ether (DME). It began operating commercially on December 18, 2020.

Methanol is used as a raw material to produce many downstream products. Its applications include adhesives, fertilizers, paints, plastics and synthetic textiles. In recent years, it has been garnering attention as an environmentally friendly alternative to heavy fuel oil in the shipping industry. Furthermore, because it can be produced from CO2 and as a promising hydrogen carrier, it could play a part in realizing sustainable, low carbon societies. DME is also raising interest as a clean, next-generation energy source. In addition to its use in aerosol products and other daily goods, it can serve as an alternative to LPG and diesel for automobiles and power generation.

Jord delivered the Air Cooled Condenser system and the air cooled heat exchanger train. In collaboration with MHI, these systems were delivered in modular form, to minimise site erection time, cost and complexity.
