Shell’s Pearl GTL Proj In Qatar To Start Ops By 1Q 2011


SEPTEMBER 27, 2010

DOHA (Zawya Dow Jones)–The first phase of Royal Dutch Shell’s (RDSA) $18 billion Pearl gas-to-liquids, or GTL, project in Qatar will start up in the first quarter of next year, with both production facilities fully operational in the first half of 2012, a company executive said Monday.

“We’ll finish the construction process for phase 1 by the end of the year and then we’ll start up the first train,” Qatar Shell Commercial Manager Krey Stirland said on the sidelines of an energy conference in the Qatari capital, Doha.

When fully operational the GTL plant will produce around 140,000 barrels a day of gas-to-liquid products like naptha, kerosene and paraffin.
