GTL plant planned for Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan and CompactGTL have signed a memorandum of cooperation to develop and implement associated gas processing technologies for the world’s first commercially deployed small-scale gas-to-liquids plant.

The proposed GTL plant, to be built in Kazakhstan, will have process up to 820,000 cu m of associated gas to produce about 3,000 b/d of synthetic diesel for local consumption, according to a release from CompactGTL.

Initial engineering for the project will take about 12 months, followed by a construction period of around 2 years, the company said.

CompactGTL expects to have the small-scale GTL plant fully operational in 2017.

The cost of the project was not disclosed, but CompactGTL as well as investors from Kazakhstan have agreed to finance, design, and build the plant, according to CompactGTL.
