  • At the heart of the GTL process

    GTL technology involves conversion of methane to high molecular weight hydrocarbons from LPG to waxy paraffins. The process itself consists of mainly 3 steps, syngas production through steam reforming or partial oxidation, liquid production through Fischer-Tropsch (F-T) reactions with cobalt or iron-based catalyst followed by product updgrading through mild hydrocracking to convert high molecular weight waxes to LPG, naphta and diesel.
