There is no doubt that U.S. shale production will grow over the next three to five years. However, “the pace of the booming shale production over the next five years will also be determined by several factors that could limit the industry’s growth potential…” energy expert Robert Rapier writes in Forbes. Midstream infrastructure constraints, such as the flaring of associated natural gas that subjects shale production to environmental regulations, and the pipeline infrastructure capital costs, could potentially slow down growth over the next few years and shift the timing of peak tight oil, argues Rapier.
INFRA’s proprietary the gas-to-liquid (GTL) technology is designed to solve these challenges. INFRA has developed and proved the feasibility of its low CAPEX and high efficiency solutions (reactors and catalysts) that converts produced or associated gas to light synthetic oil fully compatible with existing infrastructure, processes, and technologies. In addition, simple back-end units allow for motor and jet fuel production right where gas is converted. Our modular and easily-customizable unit design can handle any volume of gas produced and are moveable for use in remote locations.
