BP and Davy Process Technology are to collaborate with EPC contractors CB&I Lummus UK, Jacobs Engineering Group and The Shaw Group to promote the commercialisation of the BP/Davy Fischer Tropsch (FT) process that transforms syngas into liquid hydrocarbons. The BP/Davy fixed-bed FT process is a low technology risk option to producing diesel, jet fuel (JP8) and naphtha from natural gas, biomass or coal derived syngas. The technology has been successfully demonstrated in Nikiski, Alaska, with full scale fixed-bed reaction tubes where the nominal 300 b/d complex met or exceeded all of its performance targets, reports BP. This process is now available for licence to third parties. BP and Davy plan to now focus on retrofit enhancements of the process.
