CompactGTL partners with Johnson Matthey for catalysts

CompactGTL has announced its strategic partnership with Johnson Matthey for the development, manufacture and supply of catalysts for its modular gas-to-liquids commercial-scale plants.

The 10-year agreement, signed in 2011, extends a relationship Johnson Matthey has had with the company for a number of years — most recently supplying catalysts for the CompactGTL commercial demonstration plant in Brazil, supplied to Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras).

CompactGTL recently confirmed that Petrobras had qualified and approved the technology for commercial deployment and is currently undertaking a number of project studies on behalf of international oil and gas industry clients for remote oilfields both on and off shore.
