Systems and methods for producing methanol are provided. A reformer feed gas including methane and carbon dioxide is provided to a methane reformer, which produces a synthesis gas. The synthesis gas includes a first portion of hydrogen, a second portion of carbon monoxide, and a third portion of carbon dioxide. The methane is present in the reformer feed gas in an amount of between 20 volume percent (vol percent) and 90 vol percent and the carbon dioxide is present in the reformer feed gas in an amount of between 10 vol percent and 80 vol percent. The synthesis gas is subjected to a methanol synthesis reactor. The methanol synthesis reactor is utilized to produce a methanol product and a purge gas stream from the synthesis gas.
