Haldor Topsoe and Sasol to jointly license GTL technology


Haldor Topsoe and Sasol to jointly license GTL technology

Sasol and Haldor Topsoe have signed a collaboration agreement to jointly license their gas-to-liquids (GTL) technologies to produce diesel fuel, kerosene, and naphtha from natural gas, F+L Daily reports.

Two companies have worked together on numerous GTL projects and technologies, and Topsoe’s SynCOR™ technologies and Sasol’s Fischer-Tropsch technologies have been licensed into several world-scale GTL ventures.

Under the collaboration agreement, the companies will offer these core technologies and will also provide Topsoe’s hydroprocessing and hydrogen technologies. This will give customers access to a single-point licensing offering that covers the entire value chain from gas feed to liquid fuels. As single-point licensors, Sasol and Topsoe will provide all necessary technology licenses for a complete GTL solution and also, basic engineering, catalysts, and hardware.

TechnipFMC has been pre-approved to provide licensor engineering support. The company was the engineering, procurement, and construction contractor for the Oryx GTL facility in Qatar and has performed several front-end engineering designs for GTL facilities, including in Uzbekistan.

It is a pleasure to announce this collaboration. Together, Sasol and Topsoe now offer customers complete and proven end-to-end GTL solutions. This is unique and extremely valuable for customers seeking bankable GTL solutions for monetizing abundant natural gas reserves.

Amy Hebert, deputy CEO of Topsoe

She added that Topsoe is “excited to expand our companies’ global leadership for proven gas monetization solutions.”
