Contract let for Uzbek gas-to-liquids plant

By OGJ editors

Uzbekistan GTL LLC has extended an existing services contract of Technip for front-end engineering design of a gas-to-liquids plant 40 km south of Qarshi in Uzbekistan.

This plant will be based on Sasol’s GTL technology and be able to produce up to 1.4 million tonnes/year, a capacity similar to the Oryx GTL plant in Qatar, also implemented by Technip. The Uzbekistan plant will have the following product slate: GTL diesel, kerosene, naphtha, and LPG.

This award follows the successful execution by Technip of the first-phase contract related to the detailed feasibility study (OGJ, Mar. 15, 2010, Newsletter). The FEED activities will be executed by Technip’s operating center in Rome with the support of the group’s center in Kuala Lumpur.
