Rocky Mountain GTL to construct Canadian gas-to-liquids project

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Greyrock Energy, Inc. announced final investment decision by the Rocky Mountain GTL Board of Directors to proceed with the construction of a commercial Gas to Liquids (GTL) plant 60 km east of Calgary, near Carseland, Alberta called the Caseland Enhanced GTL (EGTL) Project.  

The EGTL project will use Greyrock's Direct Fuel Production system and GreyCat catalyst and will include enhancements by Expander Energy, Inc.

The plant will use natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGL) as feedstocks.  Products produced will include a synthetic diesel fuel and naphtha. The diesel fuel is a premium product that has ultra-high cetane, zero sulfur, and good lubricity.  In addition, the liquid fuel products produced are clean burning and can be used in existing diesel engines.

A recent study by Greyrock and partners concluded that PM (Particulate Matter) emissions from current vehicles in could be reduced by approximately 19% by simply blending 20% synthetic diesel with currently available diesel. This improvement can be accomplished with no changes to the current vehicle fleet, no material changes to infrastructure and no involvement by the consumer. Other benefits from a 20% fuel blend include reductions in carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and methane (CH4) emissions by a projected 24%, 5.5%, and 11%, respectively.

Additional advantages of synthetic fuel use include improved fuel economy, enhanced vehicle performance and increased engine life.

The New LNG Imperative

Register Now

The shale gas boom established the US as the world’s leading natural gas producer and is responsible for billions of dollars of investments in the US gas processing industry. Since 2012, the US has witnessed unprecedented growth in new gas processing capacity and infrastructure. This rise is due to greater production of domestic shale gas, which is providing cheap, available feedstock to fuel the domestic gas processing, LNG and petrochemical industries. New gas processing projects include the construction of billions of cubic feet per day of new cryogenic and gas processing capacity, NGL fractionators, multi-billion-dollar pipeline infrastructure projects, and the development of millions of tons per year of new LNG export terminal construction. Attend this webcast to hear from Lee Nichols, Editor/Associate Publisher, Hydrocarbon Processing, Scott Allgood, Director-Data Services, Energy Web Atlas and Peregrine Bush, Senior Cartographic Editor, Petroleum Economist as they discuss the future of LNG and the application of Energy Web Atlas, a web-based GIS platform which allows users to track real-time information for every LNG project.
