Methanex Medicine Hat Expansion Project

Methanex Corporation proposes the expansion of its existing methanol production facility in Medicine Hat, Alberta via construction of a new methanol production unit at the existing location. The production capacity at the existing facility is approximately 0.5 million tonnes per year. The expansion project would result in a further 1 to 1.3 million tonnes per year of methanol production (an increase in methanol production of over 200 percent).
