A special 35th anniversary edition of EFI's annual forum will bring together stakeholders involved in technologies, projects, and scenario planning in the dynamic areas related to the monetization of natural gas, the production of syngas from a range of feedstocks, and the conversion to fuels and chemicals.


Presentations from EFI member companies and special invited guests include:


The Outlook for Natural Gas | A keynote talk by ExxonMobil featuring an updated analysis of the trends that are shaping global supply and demand for natural gas, expanding availability enabled by new technologies, and growth in sectors such as transportation and power generation.

Gas-to-Products |
 Presentations from companies at the forefront of some of the most innovative gas-to-chemicals developments, including an update from Siluria Technologies on its OCM demonstration plant in La Porte, and insight from stakeholders into the dynamics of some of the gas-to-products projects under consideration or planned in North America.


Gas Monetization | An exploration and assessment of the pathways being explored and exploited by resource owners, operators, and technology providers to monetize natural gas, methane, ethane, and NGLs featuring companies including Cheniere Energy, Pioneer Energy, Primus Green Energy, and CENA, actively involved in gas-to-products strategies and implementation, flare reduction, and the regional opportunities being pursued amidst reduced gas/oil differentials in the major markets.


Unconventional Conversion Technologies | A session featuring a comprehensive overview of research and development underway - and the opportunities being explored - in areas offering potentially transformational technology advances across the natural gas value chain.  Bioconversion of methane, CO2-to-fuels, and new alternatives to oleochemicals will be covered in talks by ARPA-E, Rice University's Energy & Environment Initiative, and others.


Downstream Methanol Routes | Briefings from some of the companies most active in the dynamic downstream methanol energy and product areas, including ExxonMobil, Haldor Topsoe, and Air Liquide, covering the significant expansion of methanol production in North America and the resurgence of interest in opportunities related to methanol-to-gasoline, methanol-to-olefins, and methanol-to-alcohols.


Small-Scale & Modular GTL | A session including an introduction by the Gas Technology Institute to a new industry initiative aimed at facilitating standardization in small-scale conversion, and insight into verification performance and scale up methodology, recent pilot plant results, and the development of operating protocols for small-scale commercial plants from companies including Velocys and Primus Green Energy.
