Services announced on the GTL web site range from basic evaluation packages, to turnkey deployment of the company’s flagship offering, the Mini-GTLTM methanol plant, under a design / build / own / operate & maintain ("DBOOM") collaboration with preferred partners. The Mini-GTL features the company’s patented GasTechno process—the only single‐step process for converting natural gas to liquids.
Starting in 2012, GTL’s service packages will allow early adopters in domestic and foreign markets to evaluate the GasTechno platform and market potential. For additional details on GTL’s new services visit http://www.gastechno.com/
The company has been evaluating and developing processes for methanol-to-
Commercialization in 2011 focused primarily on commercial applications that address gas flaring, small stranded natural gas fields and pipeline gas in Michigan. However, the growing volume of interest comes from outside the United States with applications targeting biogas, landfill gas and coal bed methane.
GTL’s new services program allows small or medium sized companies to access GasTechno’s key technology benefits by delivering gas conversion plants specifically configured for the customer’s application and local market. Walter Breidenstein, CEO states, "We have a growing interest in Mini-GTL applications in foreign markets, but we do not have any specific market or financial demographics to properly represent all these requests. Every market is so different; many potential applications require full integration into biodiesel facilities, solvent recovery, existing methanol facilities or other downstream assets to reduce costs. That’s what drove us to develop these new services for 2012."
Evan Visser, CTO noted, "The power of GasTechno is its ability to scale up to its largest potential where the highest return on investment is realized. In order to grow market share, we’re looking outside Michigan to find the most ideal domestic and foreign partners to design, build, own, operate and maintain these plants. The ROI for larger scales is very attractive even at $4-5/mmbtu pricing and modest gas feed rates; this is what the gas marketers want to see. We will be able to demonstrate this potential unlike any other competing technology."
The new GTL service offering includes:
Basic Evaluation Package - $50,000
Basic Engineering Study - $250,000
Mini-GTL™ Methanol Plant - $2 million
