Pearl GTL is innovative in its design, construction and markets. Shell has more than 3,500 patents in all stages of the Pearl GTL process, based on some 35 years of research. The Pearl GTL project will produce 260,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day of products, including 120,000 barrels per day of natural gas liquids and ethane and 140,000 barrels a day of GTL products. Production ramp-up is taking place this year and full production reached in 2012.

The Summit will also look beyond mega projects.  Nicholas Gay, CEO, and Iain Baxter, Director of Business Development, CompactGTL will provide an insight into pioneering small scale developments in the XTL sector.

CompactGTL has realised the world’s first, fully integrated, small scale GTL facility.  Commissioned in December 2010 at Petrobras’ Aracaju site, Brazil, the plant has been running on test since then.  The success of this project is the culmination of 4 years of innovative technical and commercial achievements by CompactGTL which was incorporated in June 2006 as a start-up business with private funding.
