LEADER IN SMALL SCALE GAS TO LIQUIDS

In 2016,CALVERT ENERGY GROUP and Oxeon Energy entered into a long-term development and licensee agreement to finance, design, build, and market Oxeon patented gas to liquids technologies in Mexico, Africa, Russia, and Middle East.

 

Oxeon patented technology of Oxeon gliding arch plasma reforming (GAPR) and advance modified reactor (AMR) takes the struggling GTL world from concept to reality with the lowest capex to barrel cost and within the smallest installed footprint.

 

This achievement has won the recognition of the Department of Energy USA, US Air Force and many of the top oil & gas companies in the world.

 

Plasma reactor technology is a process that rearranges carbon and hydrogen molecules in a manner that produces liquids and heavier hydrocarbon molecules.

 

Designed for on & offshore applications CAL-GTL provides the right solution for small to mid-scale applications to convert flare, biogas, land-fill, and methane gas into valuable liquid products such as diesel, kerosene, jet fuel, methanol and ethanol. The CAL-GTL plant provides a simplified and cost competitive solution.

 

CAL-GTL technology is proven, modular and scalable. It operates at very low power levels, can accept various gas feed compositions directly from the well pad or processing unit, typical gas feed volumes between 200Mscfd to 100MMscfd.

 

Basic designed for natural, associated, and non-associated, methane and flare gas.

 

 

 

PROCESS OVERVIEW

The CALVERT CAL-GTL® process converts natural, flare, and methane gas into methanol in a single, simple step.

 

The patented process uses a proven glided arch reformer and partial oxidation reactor that is effective on high and low btu gas.

 

The carbon efficiencies exceed current and traditional technologies without expensive pre-treatment, exotic catalysts or complicated processing steps.

 

The introductory CAL-GTL plant further simplifies the process by producing a raw blend of liquid alcohols.

 

The alcohol blend can then be refined with a basic upgrader or oxtane booster.

 

The GTL system yield produces 100bbls of liquids for every 1MMscf of gas feed. The plant can be operated and monitored remotely.

 

- Typical foot print for a 100bpd GTL plant: 4 meters (l) x 3 meters (w) x 5 meters (h).
- Typical yield: 1MMscf equals 100bbls.
