GAS CONVERSION (LNG/GTL)
Natural Gas, NGLs Could Help US Refiners Beat “Octane Shortage”
Opportunities to convert gas or natural gas liquids into high-octane gasoline blending stocks could contribute to growth in US natural gas demand.
Design of a Floating-Liquefied-Natural-Gas System for Severe Metocean Conditions
This paper describes a split-process FLNG design where primary production and gas-treatment functions are provided on a host platform while liquefaction occurs on a separate vessel.
Commercial GTL Project Opens in Southeast Texas
Infra Technology, a company specializing in the development of synthetic fuels from natural gas, coal, and biomass, opened the first completed small-scale commercial gas-to-liquids (GTL) project in the state of Texas.
Guest Editorial: Creating Value From Flared Natural Gas
Approximately 5% of world annual gas production is being flared or vented. This is equivalent to approximately 110–140 billion m3 (Bcm) of gas, and equates to the combined gas consumption of Central and South America in 2013.
Natural Gas Processing and Handling
Despite the currently deteriorating oil and gas prices, natural gas, the “least carbon-intensive” fossil fuel, is still projected by ExxonMobil, the International Energy Agency, and other sources to grow by 65% from 2010 to 2040
Operations Excellence Begins in Design
Achieving production and availability targets is paramount to the ultimate success of any liquefied-natural-gas (LNG) project. Both are important factors in any life-cycle economic analysis.
New Syngas Reforming Solutions for Enhanced Gas-to-Diesel Conversion
This paper presents an overview of the challenges of using traditional synthesis gas reforming methods for efficient gas-to-liquids (GTL) conversion.
FLNG: Applying Advanced Technology To Bring More Natural Gas to Market
The constraints of space and seaworthiness required the designers of Shell’s joint-venture floating-liquefied-natural-gas (FLNG) facility to assemble these technologies in novel configurations.
Gas Production Technology
Conventional wisdom implies that natural-gas demand will continue to grow, especially in locations where coal is being phased out, nuclear growth has slowed/reversed, and renewables remain a small and intermittent energy source for the foreseeable future.
