Gas Valorization

  • Professionals interested in technical information about the different ways to valorize gas.
  • To provide technical and economic information regarding the various options for valorizing gas.
Learning Objectives
  • To grasp the essence of gas markets, including natural gas and syngas (CO + H2).
  • To be aware of the importance of syngas: production modes and valorization channels.
  • To learn about the various technologies and their conditions of implementation.
  • To learn about the latest projects under consideration.
Ways and means
  • Industry experts share their views of current developments.

Natural gas 1 day
  • Natural gas reserves, conventional or non-conventional.
  • Production, consumption and trade, utilization of natural gas worldwide.
  • Field treatment, production and by-products (ethane, LPG’s, condensates).
  • Different ways for gas transportation: pipelines, LNG shiping, …
  • Quality specifications for commercial natural gas.
  • Valorization of natural gas: as fuel (domestic or industrial uses), generation of other energy types (electrical, cogeneration), car-fuel (CNG, GTL), chemical valorization.
Syngas production 1 day
  • Composition and feedstocks (natural gas, hydrocarbons, coal).
  • Different modes of syngas production: steam reforming, partial oxidation (POx), autothermal reforming.
  • Gas production from biomass: advantages, yields, constraints. Example of a biorefinery.
Syngas valorization 0.5 day
  • Maximization of hydrogen production in the refineries through the shift reaction.
  • Chemical synthesis: production of alcohol like Methanol, Ammonia and other chemical compounds.
  • GTL Complex (Gas-To-Liquid): production of liquid hydrocarbons from gas through Fischer Tropsch reaction.
  • Coal gasification.
  • Electrical energy production, steam and hydrogen for refining industry: IGCC (Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle).
Economic aspects of gas valorization 0.5 day
  • Investment (Capex), operating costs (Opex), costs for raw materials.
  • Marketing advantages, environment issues.
  • Example: comparison of GTL with LNG.
  • Strategies of different actors: production countries of natural gas, licensers, oil or gas trusts, engineering companies.
