Methanex’s production facility in Medicine Hat has an annual capacity of 600,000 tonnes and is well situated to supply methanol primarily to customers in western Canada and the northwestern United States.

Methanex is Canada’s only commercial scale methanol producer and is a major employer in Medicine Hat, Alberta, providing 150 highly-skilled permanent positions, as well as term and contract positions. Methanex’s operation contributes to a significant number of indirect jobs in the local area.

Methanex's Medicine Hat methanol plant provides a much-needed local supply of methanol to Alberta industries and added value to Alberta’s natural gas (feedstock).

Methanex invested in excess of USD $150 million in growth and maintenance capital expenditures to restart the facility in 2011, add distillation capacity in 2013 and perform a major plant refurbishment in 2015. These investments have had a direct impact on the local economy.
