One of the industry's biggest regular gatherings - Gas to Liquids 2011

Top Quote Message from the conference chairman: Alex Forbes... For the gas-to-liquids (GTL) industry, the past decade was one of significant achievements but also one of disappointments. The coming decade, in contrast, looks very promising. End Quote
  • (1888PressRelease) October 19, 2011 - Two proprietary technologies have been proven at world scale, and other technology providers are on the threshold of proving their technologies at commercial scale. Market fundamentals look more supportive than ever, with oil prices expected to remain strong and natural gas prices, in some markets at least, looking soft for the foreseeable future. Little wonder, for example, that attention has turned to North America as a potential location for new world-scale GTL plants.

    As Shell's Pearl GTL plant ramps up to full production in Qatar, the profitability of GTL will be amply demonstrated. This single project will materially impact the financial and production profiles of one of the world's largest energy companies.
    To find out more about the potential of GTL technology, join us later this month at SMi's GTL conference - one of the industry's biggest regular gatherings - and experience for yourself the buzz of excitement spreading through the industry.
