Houston Firm Targets Yearend for Pilot GTL Facility
August 13, 2014

Dear Client,

Houston-based firm Biofuels Power Corp. (BFLS) has targeted the end of this year to have online its pilot GTL demonstration unit at the proposed Houston Clean Energy Park. The purpose of the GTL pilot plant is to commercially demonstrate converting stranded natural gas resources to synthetic crude oil. Doing this enables operators of oil wells remote from available natural gas transport infrastructure or viable gas monetization options to produce a synthetic liquid product that can be comingled with conventionally produced oil for subsequent refining....Full Article

Industry Analysis: Improving the Viability of GTL Developments

On June 3-5, 2014, industry met in Houston at this publisher’s GTL North America 2014 conference to highlight the growth of the GTL industry and the advances in technology which may facilitate the first projects entering construction within the next two years. Some $50 billion of gas-conversion infrastructure has been proposed in the U.S., including four large-scale GTL projects along with a dozen smaller-scale projects, 11 methanol proposals, more than a dozen ammonia projects/upgrades, and new direct-reduced iron (DRI) infrastructure. This analysis highlights some key takeaways regarding how to improve the viability of U.S.-based GTL projects at small- to medium-scale. (<30,000 b/d)....Full Article

R3 Sciences working to commercialize modular gas-to-methanol units
November 22, 2013

R3 Sciences have successfully produced commercial grade methanol in a continuous flow pilot system using a liquid, homogenous catalytic process. Advances in homogenous catalysis developed by R3 Sciences will allow the production of methanol from air-derived syngas with only trace levels of catalyst residual. The company is looking to license its technology for deployment in transportable, modular units to process natural gas at the source, providing opportunities for oil field operators to commercialize stranded and flared gas into methanol. R3 Sciences is a unit of Enersciences Holdings, which through other units provides drilling fluids and services, frac and coil chemicals and power generation technologies for upstream operators. ...Full Article

Feature- Flurry of CO2 Management Advances Make Headlines

In just the last two weeks three major research initiatives concerned with the advancement of technologies to convert or capture carbon dioxide efficiently at industrial scales have announced progress. Increasingly, research organizations and public and private commercial entities alike are pursuing advances in capturing, storing, and even efficiently converting CO2 to reduce overall emissions at energy projects. In this Feature we highlight these recent announcements, but there are already dozens of research programs in progress, which aim to convert CO2 into usable products or to sequester it in more efficient means.
