Shell and Qatar Petroleum sold the first shipment of GTL from JV

June 14/2011

(ICIS) -- Shell and Qatar Petroleum said on Monday they have sold the first commercial shipment of gas-to-liquid (GTL) gasoil produced from their joint venture Pearl GTL plant at Ras Laffan in Qatar. The sale marks the start of production of GTL products when the State of Qatar and Shell, the operator of the Pearl GTL plant, begin to receive revenue from the project, the two companies said in a joint statement. No further details of the gasoil sale were immediately available.

Once fully operational, the Pearl GTL plant is expected to produce 1.6bn cubic feet of gas per day, according to the statement.

The gas will be processed to deliver an expected 120,000 bbl/day of condensate, liquefied natural gas (LPG) and ethane and an expected 140,000 bbl/day of GTL products, it said.

The GTL plant is expected to produce products such as kerosene, gasoil, base oils, n-paraffin as well as naphtha, according to the statement.
