Technology that converts methane from natural gas into synthetic liquid fuels, known as gas-to-liquids (GTL), has developed a bad reputation, especially in the last decade. GTL pioneers like Shell and Sasol have had some success with their technologies in a few countries. But efforts to roll out large-scale GTL schemes more broadly have largely failed, including some high-profile project cancellations in the US. Today, amid higher commodity prices and an increased preference for lower-emissions products, GTL technology is getting another look.
