erwise unused gas resources.
The existing F-T process industrial ap-
plications produce multiple hydrocarbon
products ranging from gases to waxes, so
having a mono-product allows the elimination of the whole
stage of the traditional technology associated with the prod-
uct upgrading facility. This also reduces capital and operating
costs, as well as marketing and logistics associated with the
by-products of the traditional XTL plants, resulting in the
overall cost and efficiency of the project being improved.
The final product is a hydrocarbon fuel with a large propor-
tion of isoparaffins (up to 50%), which makes it ideal for a
high-quality winter diesel and aviation fuel precursor.
INFRA.xtl process is good for the environment. It generates
just traces of oxygenates, eliminating the need for rejection
units and lowering environmental impact. The development
of domestic natural gas resources enables countries to ef-
fectively address national energy security issues while low-
ering their emissions profiles.
“Associated petroleum gas is
a by-product of petroleum oil
separation, which is commonly
vented or burned into the
atmosphere instead of reaching
customers or being consumed
on site. This is a $40 billion loss
of a non-renewable natural
energy resource that could
provide for a quarter of the
United States’ natural gas
