Technip and Sasol form a front-end engineering alliance

Technip and Sasol, the owners of leading gas-to-liquids (GTL) technology, have established an alliance for front-end engineering services for future Sasol GTL projects. Furthermore, it also allows for Technip’s participation during the execution stage of future GTL projects. This alliance, which builds on existing relationships, aims to achieve industry-leading capital productivity through the highest standards of HSE, operability, accelerated innovation and reduced project cycle times.
As the reference and main execution centre at Technip for GTL, the operating centre in Rome, Italy will be in charge of the management of the alliance including the strengthening of the long-standing relationship between the Technip Stone & Webster Process Technology centres in Boston, Massachusetts with Sasol Technology for the hydrocarbon synthesis technology section.
Nello Uccelletti, Technip’s Senior Vice President Onshore, declared, “Through the acquisition of Stone & Webster process technologies, Technip has become the exclusive co-developer of Sasol’s hydrocarbon synthesis reactor technology. We are proud to be Sasol’s contractor of choice for its future GTL facility projects, thereby confirming both our leading position worldwide as one of the few contractors with experience in major GTL facilities and our long-term relationship with Sasol.”
Lean Strauss, Senior Group Executive of Sasol, noted, “Sasol is excited about its GTL future. We are confident that in working closely together, the design and execution expertise of Technip will significantly further enhance the robustness of our GTL value proposition as we grow our business where our technology strength lies.”
