Brief company profile

Salalah Methanol Company LLC (SMC) owns and operates a methanol production facility in the Salalah Free Zone located near the Port of Salalah, Oman. The company was founded in February 2006 with Oman Oil Company (90%) and Takamul Investment Company (10%) as shareholders.

The facility comprises a 3,000 ton/day methanol plant and related utilities and off-sites, as well as export facilities. The plant includes captive power generation, water desalination, boiler feed-water preparation, auxiliary steam generation, condensate/water-treatment facilities, instrument air/plant air and nitrogen generation, and other utilities, including a wastewater treatment plant.

Methanol is produced from natural gas supplied through a 24 inch pipeline provided by the Ministry of Oil and Gas, through Oman Gas Company. The methanol is exported from the Port of Salalah which is in the immediate vicinity of the facility.

SMC’s plant is located approximately 15km southwest of the city of Salalah, southwest of the Sultanate of Oman. The Salalah port’s premises are 200m to the east of the site.
