Technip and Sasol, the owner of the world’s leading gas-to-liquids (GTL) technology, have established an alliance for front-end engineering services for future Sasol GTL projects. The alliance also allows for Technip’s participation during the execution stage of future GTL projects. Officials said the alliance, which builds on existing relationships, aims to achieve strong capital productivity through the highest standards of HSE, operability, accelerated innovation and reduced project cycle times. GTL technology is becoming increasingly important not only for the environmental advantages of its products, but also because it provides an efficient and safe solution for the transportation of natural gas.
