TIGAS™ team wins the 2019 IChemE Global Award
15 November 2019
Members of the Topsoe TIGAS™ technology team received the prestigious 2019 IChemE Global Award in the category ‘Oil & Gas’ at a black-tie event in Hull, UK recently.
With TIGAS™, Haldor Topsoe is the only single company in the world that offers an end-to-end gas-to-gasoline solution, including license, basic engineering, catalyst, and hardware.
Recently, the world’s only natural gas-to-gasoline plant in operation began production in Turkmenistan, based on Topsoe’s advanced TIGAS™ technology.
The Turkmenistan TIGAS™ plant has a name plate capacity of 15,500 barrels per day of on-spec RON 92 gasoline. Several other companies around the world have shown interest in the technology.
TIGAS™ is a viable technology in regions with abundant gas resources where it represents an attractive option to monetize natural gas by producing synthetic gasoline that complies with the highest environmental standards, contains no sulfur and very little unwanted byproducts, which can be sold into a local or export market.
Topsoe’s proprietary end-to-end TIGAS™ solution is based on industry-proven Topsoe technology platforms and catalysts, the key being Topsoe’s proprietary SynCOR Methanol™ and Gasoline Synthesis technologies.
