Technology

In brief, the process of converting natural gas to liquid products includes Purification of Natural Gas, Synthesis Gas Production (carbon dioxide and hydrogen mixture), Fischer–Tropsch Process, Quality Enhancement and Separation. In this project synthesis gas is produced through reforming methane gas with steam and carbon dioxide. Fischer–Tropsch unit which is one of the main units of this refinery works based on Fixed Bed Reactor with Cobalt Catalyst method which can be sourced from inside Iran as the technology and resources already exist locally. The engineering phase of this project is jointly done by Research Institute of Petroleum Industry and ROSEMOND Co.

Overview

Iran owns 18% of the world's natural gas resources which makes her 2nd gas producer of the world after Russia and this fact guarantees the availability of natural gas in Iran for next 200 years. Having such a huge resource of natural gas, depletion of world's crude oil resources, growth of demand in energy and oil related products market, pollution caused by consumption of fossil fuels are considered some of the motives to raise interest in natural gas as a substitute for oil based fuels. Conversion of natural gas to liquid is the top choice method to produce non-oil based fuels.

Vision and Mission

At the moment, Iran is in grave need of clean fuel substitutes which create less pollution and have higher efficiency compared to petroleum based fuels. Qeshm Laft GTL Company is going to domesticate this high technology industry for the first time. The current proposal has two phases; the first phase will reach a production capacity of 3,000 barrels of hydrocarbon products per day while the second phase will expand this capacity to 12,000 barrels per day.

Conversion of natural gas to liquid is the top choice method to produce non-oil based fuels. As a novel, knowledge based firm, Qeshm Laft GTL Company was established based on this concept, aiming to construct Iran's first GTL plant with a daily capacity of 3,000 barrels of liquid, natural gas based, products to cater for domestic and foreign market needs.

Products

The main objective of this project is to commercialize the technology that has been developed by Iran's Research Institute of Petroleum Industry to reach an annual production capacity of 990,000 barrels of high quality fuel products (containing no Sulphur) in Iran for the first time. The following table summarizes the products
