We have developed alliances with world-class manufacturers that form a supply-chain for the delivery of commercial scale plants. This collaborative approach ensures the economic viability of the critical components and that manufacturing capacity exists to meet the growing demand for commercial plants.
CompactGTL works closely with world-class experts, consultants and technology companies to continue to ensure that the technology developments sustain a technical and commercial advantage for our clients.
Strategic alliances have been established for mass production of the CompactGTL proprietary SMR and FT reactors. The development and successive approval of the reactors and catalysts that were manufactured for the Petrobras Commercial Demonstration Plant is testament to the partnerships formed to meet commercial demand. Sumitomo Corporation and Sumitomo Precision Products of Japan, manufacture and supply the SMR and FT brazed reactor blocks for CompactGTL alongside our alliance with the world class major catalyst manufacturer, Johnson Matthey; for the development, manufacture and supply of catalysts. Kawasaki Heavy Industries has become a strategic supply chain partner to execute the reactor modularisation; the construction of the reactors and the subsequent modularisation benefit from the close proximity of the Sumitomo Precision Products plant in Amagasaki and Kawasaki Heavy Industries facilities, in Harima. The shipping of the complete reactors will then take place from Kawasaki’s quayside facilities at Harima, to clients around the world.
CompactGTL has developed a strategic relationship with SBM Offshore, of the Netherlands, the world’s largest Floating Production Storage Offloading (FPSO) vessel contractor. This has allowed the integration of the Plant into an FPSO to be challenged, optimised and refined.
Fluor Limited is the latest strategic partner of CompactGTL focusing on the delivery of pre-FEED and FEED studies. Fluor will also support CompactGTL in the evaluation of the commercial demonstration plant operating data, execution of feasibility and scoping studies and delivery of CompactGTL’s EPC (Engineering Procurement & Construction) contracts.
The Company has established strong working relationships with Bayer Technology Services and The UK Welding Institute, which provide independent technical and experimental support, computer simulation models for both the Steam Methane Reformer and Fischer Tropsch reactors and catalysts and mechanical integrity analysis for the reactors.
Bayer Technology Services has been integral in providing extensive technical services in all aspects of reactor design and operation. With a development laboratory located at Bayer’s facilities; CompactGTL benefits from the technical expertise of the Bayer Technology Services’ team.
CompactGTL has been supported by Genesis Oil and Gas Consultants during conceptual process design in conceptual engineering, modelling and scoping of individual plant specifications.
