EFI's annual Gas-to-Market & Energy Conversion Forum brings together stakeholders involved in key developments related to the technologies, strategies, and projects in the dynamic areas related to the utilization of natural gas, the production of syngas from any feedstock, and the conversion to fuels and chemicals.


Presentations from EFI member companies and invited guests include:


Conversion Technology Innovation  | A keynote talk by Dr. Ellen Williams, former Chief Scientist for BP and currently director of the U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy (ARPA-E). EFI forum delegates are invited to attend a one day workshop on Tuesday, 25 October at Rice University's Shell Auditorium to meet with those involved in ARPA-E technology programs on natural gas.


Gas-to-Products | A keynote talk by UOP Honeywell Chief Technology Officer Jim Rekoske, and insight from stakeholders including Sasol and Siluria Technologies into the dynamics of some of the gas-to-products projects under consideration or planned in North America.


Gas Monetization | Exploration and assessment of the pathways being explored by resource owners, operators, and technology providers to monetize natural gas, methane, ethane, and NGLs, and analysis of the technoeconomic impacts related to low oil prices, increasing petrochemical consumption, and exports.


North American GTL | Briefings by companies on first commercial and pilot GTL plants under construction, commissioned, or in operation in North America, including  INFRA Technology (100 bpd pilot plant) Velocys, Greyrock Energy, Standard Alcohol, and Pioneer Energy.


Small-Scale & Modular GTL | A session focusing small-scale GTL and syngas technologies and the opportunities they present in North America and elsewhere for distributed conversion of natural gas and other feedstocks into fuels (diesel, gasoline, DME) and chemicals. The session will feature updates from companies at the vanguard of some of the most dynamic development and commercial activities in this area.


Waste-to-Gas | A talk on the first commercial demonstration of a small-scale waste-to-gas system substituting natural gas with greenhouse gas CO2 for the production of CO for industrial applications.


Novel Conversion Routes | Talks covering novel approaches to the conversion of natural gas to fuels and chemicals including  oxidative coupling of methane (OCM), direct coupling of methane via non-thermal plasma and or microwaves, and oxidative dehydrogenation of ethane, by Nu:ionic Technologies, EcoCatalytic Technologies, and Siluria Technologies.


Site Visit Program | A guided visit to INFRA Technology's new 100 bpd GTL pilot plant located just outside Houston.
