Half the world’s proven gas reserves are in remote locations, without cost-effective transport to market. In consequence, 10 billion cubic feet of unused gas is flared into the atmosphere at oil fields every day, and wasted.
As demand for energy grows and environmental regulations tighten, pressure is increasing to find new ways of developing these unexploited resources.
"We work at the forefront of new energy technologies, using our expertise in oil and gas and refining to help our customers develop plants to produce clean fuels and chemicals."
David Bown, Technology Manager
One technology which is being developed to meet these demands is GTL (gas-to-liquids) technology, which makes ultra-clean diesel and specialist chemicals from natural gas.
For over ten years we worked closely with Syntroleum, who were developing their own licensed GTL technology. During this time our focus was to apply this technology in a commercial context by designing first-of-a-kind plants that are able to produce GTL fuels cost-effectively.
