EFI's annual Gas-to-Market and Syngas Conversion Forum brings together stakeholders involved in key developments related to the technologies, strategies and projects in the dynamic areas related to the monetization of natural gas, the production of syngas from renewable and fossil feedstocks, and the conversion to fuels and chemicals.


Presentations from EFI member companies and invited guests include:

Strategic Perspectives | Strategic and techno-economic perspectives from industry representatives including a keynote talk by ExxonMobil featuring an updated analysis of the trends that are shaping global supply and demand for natural gas, expanding availability enabled by new technologies, and growth in sectors such as transportation and power generation.

Stranded & Associated Gas Monetization | An exploration and assessment of the pathways being explored by resource owners, operators, and technology providers to monetize natural gas, methane, ethane, and NGLs, an analysis of the technoeconomic impacts related to low oil prices, increasing petrochemical consumption, and exports, and a focus on criteria for success at different scales.


Small-Scale & Modular GTL | A session focusing on the pilot projects, demonstrations, and first commercial references of small-scale GTL and syngas technologies and the opportunities they present in North America and elsewhere for both offshore and distributed conversion of natural gas and other feedstocks into fuels (diesel, gasoline, LNG, CNG, DME) and chemicals. The session will feature updates from companies at the vanguard of demonstration and commercial activities in this area including Honeywell UOPPraxair, and INFRA Technology.


Small-Scale LNG | Update on the recent commercial introduction of small-scale, transportable LNG and CNG production plants by Galileo Technology with scalable capacity for numerous applications.


Chemical Looping |Updates on advances in chemical looping systems for petrochemical applications, including syngas production, propane to propylene, ethylene via oxidative coupling of methane, and olefins via oxidative dehydrogenation. 


Gas-to-Products | Insight from stakeholders into the dynamics of some of the gas-to-products projects under consideration or planned in North America, and how the lowest NGL prices in more than a decade are affecting these.

Methane-to-Methanol, Alcohols & Ethers | An update by Standard Alcohol on the company's first commercial plant producing mixed alcohols for the production of a drop-in replacement for ethanol, other oxygenates, and speciality chemicals, and updates on small-scale methanol production and the opportunities for downstream methanol fuel applications (such as DME) from technology providers Haldor Topsoe and their partners.


Bioconversion of Methane | An update on research and development related to the bioconversion of feedstocks into biofuels and chemicals.

GTL Fundamentals Short Course | A comprehensive short course to learn and / or get up to speed on global GTL processes, production, applications and developments.

Site Visit Program |A briefing and guided visit to INFRA Technology's recently commissioned M100 GTL plant.
