Shell Chemicals’ portfolio of natural gas-based fluids and solvents for the chemicals industry is available globally via business hubs in Singapore, Houston and Rotterdam. The next-generation, high-purity paraffinic fluids are made from gas-to-liquids (GTL) products manufactured at Pearl GTL in Qatar, a joint venture between Shell and Qatar Petroleum.

Shell has been using upstream and downstream gas to manufacture a range of petrochemicals at its facilities in the U.K., U.S., Canada and Saudi Arabia. Based on the proprietary Shell Middle Distillates Synthesis technology, Shell GTL fluids and solvents offer enhanced performance over conventional products in a number of applications, according to the company. In addition to their purity, low odor and stable and consistent composition, the new range of GTL fluids and solvents are designed to be biodegradable with low eco-toxicity and photochemical reactivity resulting in low ozone formation potential, according to Shell.
