According to Shastan Commercial Investment
Company, Mehran Banazadeh told the Annual General Assembly of Marjan
Petrochemical Company on Saturday that the company operated at 95% of its
nominal capacity during the previous calendar year despite shortages in gas
feedstock supply and construction of another methanol plant in the region.
Presenting the financial reports to the
assembly, he added: "The income from the sale of the products has doubled,
but the increase in gas prices, as the most important component in the cost
price of methanol, has had a great impact on rising costs."
