AAP logoAAP 16/08/2016 By Evan Schwarten

Clive Palmer has been issued with a Federal Court summons to face questions over the collapse of the company behind the Yabulu Nickel refinery.

Federal Court registrar Murray Belcher on Tuesday ordered Mr Palmer be issued a summons to appear on August 30 so he can answer questions about the collapse of Queensland Nickel, which is in liquidation.

A summons was ordered to be sent to Mr Palmer's Gold Coast home and his Brisbane office, as well as a fax number and five email addresses linked to his companies.

Summons were also issued for Queensland Nickel executives Ian Ferguson and Daren Wolfe.

Liquidators are seeking a summons for Mr Palmer's nephew Clive Mensink but a decision on whether to issue one has been adjourned.

Queensland Nickel collapsed earlier this year, resulting in the loss of hundreds of jobs of the Yabulu Nickel Refinery.
