AirLiquide And ExxonMobil Debut Gas-To-Gasoline Technology

June 15, 2015
Air Liquide Global E&C Solutions enters into an agreement with ExxonMobil Research Engineering to market G2G gas-to-gasoline technology.

Air Liquide Global E&C Solutions, the engineering and construction arm of Air Liquide Group, enters into a global technology licensing agreement with ExxonMobil Research and Engineering. Air Liquide will market and license its Lurgi MegaMethanol technology combined with ExxonMobil’s proprietary methanol-to-gasoline (MTG) technology to transform natural gas into ultra-low sulfur gasoline. The combination of technologies will be marketed under the trademark G2G

The G2G technology converts natural gas and other feedstocks into motor gasoline containing virtually no sulfur and low benzene content, according to Air Liquide. The G2G technology offer is licensed as an integrated solution and will be deployed globally through Air Liquide Global E&C Solutions’ network.

Global E&C Solutions has signed nearly 20 licenses for its Lurgi MegaMethanol technology since the year 2000, according to the company. ExxonMobil’s MTG technology selectively converts methanol to ultra-low sulfur gasoline. ExxonMobil’s first plant using the methanol-to-gasoline technology operated in New Zealand from 1985 until 1995. A second facility using Exxon’s technology has been in operation in China since 2009, and a third facility is currently under construction, also in China.
