Company Description

CompactGTL is a specialist gas-to-liquids company, focuses on oilfield developments. The firm's technology was originally developed within Accentus plc, formerly part of the UK Atomic Energy Authority. CompactGTL plc was incorporated in June 2006 and a new management team was recruited to take the business forward as a solution provider to the upstream markets.CompactGTL's proprietary technology solution converts gas into synthetic crude oil or syncrude. However, the economic value of this solution is much greater than simply the syncrude produced as it also enables the costs associated with gas re-injection, or flaring penalties, to be avoided and can even facilitate the development of marginal fields. This provides a clear distinction from the proposition offered by conventional GTL technologies where projects rely on economies of scale and focus on converting gas into high value refined petroleum products.The headquarters of CompactGTL is situated in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. The company's technical and operations teams are located there, which also incorporates a development laboratory. Its training centre in Wilton, Teesside provides a facility for on-going demonstration of the CompactGTL process in the UK. Originally CompactGTL's first fully integrated pilot plant facility; operating since it was commissioned in 2008, it is established as a training centre for all CompactGTL clients. CompactGTL has a representative office in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil which supports and advises its clients close to the office. The company also has close links with its partner Bayer Technology Services with a development laboratory in Leverkusen, Germany.CompactGTL's business and strategy is focuses on providing a unique value solution to the costly problem of associated gas disposal in the upstream oil and gas industry and its commitment to continued investment in research and development will sustain its technical and commercial competitive advantages.
