Stranded gas

Of the estimated 6,609 trillion cubic feet of world proven reserves of natural gas, about one third is considered to be stranded (too remote from market, including offshore, physically impossible, or economically unviable). Examples include huge reserves of natural gas in Prudhoe Bay oil field, Alaska, Mackenzie Delta in Canada.


Decisions on utilization of a specific stranded gas field are driven by the cost and complexity of gas transportation. Currently, gas pipelines or LNG terminals and cryogenic tankers are the two major means of gas transportation. Both require colossal investment and are very complex in construction, operation and maintenance.


Given growing interest in exploring natural resources in remote locations, INFRA.xtl technology allows to monetise such resources by enabling construction and operation of compact GTL plants on site, producing high value-added product - liquid motor fuels or synthetic crude - transported by existing oil infrastructure.
