Shell's GTL project in Qatar to fully operate by the middle of next year

June 08/2011

(ICIS) -- Shell is on schedule to have its huge gas-to-liquid (GTL) project in Qatar fully operational by the middle of next year, a company spokesperson said on Tuesday. The Anglo-Dutch oil major has invested about USD18bn-19bn (EUR 12-13bn) in the project.

The Pearl GTL facility, at Ras Laffan, is the worlds biggest with a production capacity of 1.6 billion cubic feet of gas a day when fully operational. This will be processed to generate 120,000 bbl/day of GTL gasoil, kerosene, base oils, n-paraffins and naphtha.

The project is expected to provide the ethane feedstock for a planned cracker project of the two companies in Qatar.
