LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM, September 19, 2016 / -- NiQuan Energy’s plant will be the first economically viable small-scale GTL plant in the world and will mark the start of a new era of small and medium-scale GTL plants, taking the industry in a new direction in which more companies ranging from operators and across the entire supply chain, can participate.

Against this backdrop, SMi is proud to announce that our Lead Sponsor, NiQuan Energy plus CH2M Hill will be sharing case studies at the 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference, taking place on 12th - 13th October 2016 in London, UK:

Using the real world example of the plant at Pointe a Pierre, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will explore how GTL companies can build robust strategies to successfully develop projects in a low oil price environment.
