Schneider Electric and ZeoGas Collaborate On Fuel Plant

Jan. 9, 2015
Schneider Electric will collaborate with ZeoGas LLC to build a new fuel manufacturing plant.

Schneider Electric will collaborate with ZeoGas LLC, a development-stage energy company focused on refining the production of gasoline, to build a new fuel manufacturing plant. Schneider Electric will provide pre-FEED power and automation controls engineering and cost estimating support to help build ZeoGas’ first fuels manufacturing plant, and will act as the main electrical contractor and main automation contractor (MEC/MAC) on the project. The collaboration follows Schneider Electric’s acquisition of Invensys and demonstrates its expanded capabilities in the oil & gas field, according to the company.

ZeoGas recently announced that it licensed Air Liquide Process and Construction Inc.’s 5,000 metric ton per day MegaMethanol production process technology for its first plant, to convert clean natural gas feedstock to syngas and then to methanol. Additionally, ZeoGas announced that it licensed ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company’s methanol to gasoline (MTG) technology to use its produced methanol to manufacture RON 92, zero-sulfur, ultra-low benzene gasoline. As ZeoGas’ MEC/MAC collaboration partner, Schneider Electric will work closely with ZeoGas’ owner’s engineer, Audubon Engineering, and with its EPC collaboration partner, Amec Foster Wheeler USA Corporation.
