Gas to Liquids

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects to halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

With an impressive 18 years of experience in the Gas to Liquids field , the SMi Group are proud to announce the deliverance of their 19th Annual GTL conference, which will be held on the 12th to the 13th of October 2016 in London. This event will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. This conference will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects giving the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. It will provide the perfect platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges. Leading industry figures will dissect cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
