Uzbekistan: Gas-to-Liquid Technology Topsoe Awarded Contract for GTL-Project in Uzbekistan
Topsoe announced that their synthesis gas technology has been chosen for Oltin Yo’l — a 38,000 barrels per day gas-to-liquids (GTL) energy plant in Uzbekistan.
Lyngby/Denmark — Topsoe will deliver proprietary equipment for two synthesis gas trains, each including autothermal reformers (ATRs), waste heat boilers, steam drums, CTS burners, refractory materials, and HTZR target tiles.
Oltin Yo’l, which is owned by Uzbekneftegaz, will produce synthetic diesel, jet fuel, and naphtha based on local natural gas.
“We are very proud to be part of this technologically advanced project and the development of Uzbekistan’s industry. And we are delighted that our state-of-the-art synthesis gas solution has been selected for the project by Hyundai Engineering, and our long-term strategic partner Sasol,” says Per Bakkerud, Executive Vice President, Topsoe.
Topsoe’s synthesis gas technology is the first step of the Sasol’s Slurry Phase Distillate Process. Sasol Technology has been appointed single point licensor, and Hyundai Engineering is the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) partner.
“In English, Oltin Yo’l means ‘golden road’ and this project will help set Uzbekistan on a golden road of development. We will produce some of the cleanest and most advanced transport fuels in the world – and we will add one of the world’s most advanced technologies to Uzbekistan’s already impressive energy industry. Topsoe’s world-leading synthesis gas process is a very welcome contribution,” says Fakhriddin Abdurasulov, General Director, Oltin Yo’l GTL.
