Haldor Topsoe wins 2019 IChemE Oil and Gas award

It was a proud Topsoe delegation who accepted the award on behalf of the larger group of excellent scientists, engineers, and other Topsoe employees involved in development of the unique TIGAS™ technology over many years.

“To us, the Oil and Gas award 2019 is the culmination of decades of complex catalyst development, pilot testing, reactor design, and process engineering. The triumph with TIGAS™ today has only been possible by sharing competences and experience across our entire company. And the result has been spectacular:  The successful design, commissioning and start-up of the world-scale and only natural gas-to-gasoline facility in Turkmenistan. And we are extremely happy to receive this recognition from the renowned IChemE organization and peers in the industry,” says Kim Knudsen, Executive Vice President of Topsoe’s Sustainables Business Unit.

The Turkmenistan TIGAS™ plant has a name plate capacity of 15,500 barrels per day of on-spec RON 92 gasoline. Several other companies around the world have shown interest in the technology.

TIGAS™ is a viable technology in regions with abundant gas resources where it represents an attractive option to monetize natural gas by producing synthetic gasoline that complies with the highest environmental standards, contains no sulfur and very little unwanted byproducts, which can be sold into a local or export market.

Topsoe’s proprietary end-to-end TIGAS™ solution is based on industry-proven Topsoe technology platforms and catalysts, the key being Topsoe’s proprietary SynCOR Methanol™ and Gasoline Synthesis technologies. Topsoe offers all catalysts and technology for the process, which allows for valuable process optimization and further development. The TIGAS™ process can also be adapted to produce gasoline in compliance with varying national specifications.
