Natural gas takes on a bigger piece of the world’s energy mix, and methane emissions during gas production and transportation are making bigger impact on environment. As part of their growth strategy a number of leading oil & gas companies (such as BP, Eni, ExxonMobil, Repsol, Shell, Statoil, Total and Wintershall) have teamed up to reduce methane’s greenhouse effects.
Whilst improving methane emissions monitoring, increasing production efficiencies and timely leak detection are important, substantial results can be achieved by engaging new technologies, such as GTL. Modern GTL technology allows to not only capture the harmful emissions but convert it profitably into value-added premium, clean burning product, such as synthetic crude oil or transportation fuel.
