"Gas to liquids: historical development of GTL technology in Shell, written by T. van Helvoort, R. van Veen and M. Senden, presents a chronicle of the development of gas-to-liquid (GTL) technology at the Shell Technology Centre, Amsterdam. Three main topics are addressed: (i) research and development (R&D) at Shell and the origin of synthetic fuels (synfuels); (ii) catalytic challenges in the Fischer-Tropsch (FT) and Shell Middle-Distillate Synthesis (SMDS) processes; and (iii) projects’ descriptions of synfuels commercial plants at Bintulu (Malaysia) and Pearl GTL (Qatar)."
