Sizing Down: Drivers and Economics for Small-scale GTL

March 30, 2016 | State of the Market Report

Several major factors have driven innovation in the small-scale gas-to-liquids (GTL) space, including horizontal drilling and multi-stage fracking to release previously untapped shale gas reserves and stricter regulations to reduce flaring. For this report we built a detailed cost model to analyze the economic viability for small-scale GTL. We then use case studies on five players in the small-scale GTL space to identify key technology improvements necessary for cost parity at commercial scale.
