The Haldor Topsoe syngas technology will be applied at the new facility in Uzbekistan. The capacity of the enterprise is estimated at 38 k barrels of liquid fuel per day.

Haldor Topsoe and OLTIN YO’L GTL (Uzbekneftegaz branch) have concluded the agreement on GTL-technology and equipment delivery to two facility phases, including reactors for ATR, exhaust heat boilers, steam drums, CTS burners, fireproof materials and HTZR.

Topsoe syngas technology will be integrated in Sasol’s SlurryPhaseDistillateProcess™ process (distillate generation in the fluid bed). SasolTechnology is the project licensor. The EPC-contractor is the Korean Hyundai Engineering Co.

At the first process stage, natural gas mixes with oxygen forming syngas, which is later Fischer-Tropsch converted into waxy SCO. At the final stage, SCO is cracked for the final product output. This project stipulates for natural gas conversion into diesel fuel, jet fuel and naphtha. The feedstock demand is estimated at 350 MMCF (9,9 mcm).

As a reminder, the Uzbekistan’s President Resolution on additional measures for project implementation “Synthetic liquid fuel production based on Shurtansky GCC refined methane” was effected on 29 December 2016. The document approved the project feasibility study and defined the funding sources.

It is expected that the global GTL market will grow to $3,2bn by 2020.
