Japanese consortium to begin trials at a gas-to-liquid plant using new technology

A Japanese consortium of oil and engineering firms is to commence trial output at a gas-to-liquid plant using new technology that can directly process natural gas containing carbon dioxide gas into naphtha, kerosene and gas oil. The plant was built by a group of firms including oil developers Japan Petroleum Exploration and Inpex and refiner Nippon Oil, Cosmo Oil, engineering firms Chiyoda Corp and Nippon Steel Engineering Co., and will produce 500 bpd during the two-year trial period. The consortium aims to build a commercial plant in April 2011, in cooperation with state-run Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corp. GTL technology, which can be used to exploit unexplored fields with confirmed gas reserves, makes it possible to create clean fuel that does not contain sulphur or aromatic content.
