GTL is focused on four specific market sources of methane: off-spec natural gas, landfill gas, biogas, and associated gas. Off-spec natural gas is, by definition, any gas that requiring processing due to being sour, having too high of a btu content, or having too much nitrogen to put into a natural gas pipeline. Landfill gas (produced by landfills) and biogas (produced by biodigesters) are typically a 50/50 mixture of methane and CO2. The GasTechno® process can be used for all of these off-spec applications without any pretreatment making it an attractive option. One of the most interesting applications for the GasTechno® process is associated gas which is a byproduct of oil production. What makes associated gas applications so interesting is how well the GasTechno® process not only utilizes the associated gas, but solves other issues facing oil producers:
An oil refinery is an ideal location to recover the methanol and convert it into other hydrocarbon fuels or petrochemicals. One of the most interesting applications is converting methanol into gasoline.
