GTL 2014

South African Sasol has begun work on a joint study for a large-scale GTL plant in Mozambique, the company announced earlier this month. Sasol's partners in the venture are Mozambique's state oil company ENH, and Italian Eni, which operates an offshore block in the Rovuma Basin (estimated to hold up to 85 trillion cubic feet of gas). PetroSA’s GTL plant in Mossel Bay, with a capacity of 36 000 barrels a day, would consume an estimated 1 trillion cubic feet in 20 years of operation.

SMi Group is delighted to announce that Gareth Coeztree, GTL Evaluations Manager, PetroSA, will be presenting on day 1 of the conference, providing attendees with highlights on PetroSA's GTL activities, including current GTL commercialization strategy, GTL projects from 2000-2014, Mozambique GTL and shale Gas Potential.

17th Gas to Liquids conference, taking place in London, UK, on the 29th and 30th of October 2014 will address the latest developments in the GTL market and much more, playing host to the world’s foremost authorities on GTL including PetroSA, Sasol North America and BP, among others. The three day meeting will provide the ideal platform for discussion over current and emerging GTL projects, developments within the industry, technology sessions and GTL projects financing.
