GTL/CTL cooperation

By Chemical Engineering |

  Last month, China Petroleum & Chemical Corp. (Sinopec; Beijing; edlinks.chemengonline.com/6893-549) and Syntroleum Corp. (Tulsa, Okla.; edlinks.chemengonline.com/6893-550) signed a memorandum of understanding for a joint technology-development effort tor advanced natural gas-to-liqquids (GTL) and coal-to-liquids (CTL) technologies. Syntroleum will provide its complete set of proprietary GTL technologies (CE, May 2004, pp. 23-27), including catalyst technology, and Fischer-Tropsch technologies related to CTL for use in China. Sinopec will begin feasibility studies for the construction of a 700,000-m.t./yr (17,000 bbl/d) GTL plant and a 3,000-m.t./yr (100 bbl/d) CTL pilot plant. The two companies will jointly market SSTC (Sinopec Syntroleum technology) to third parties in China.
