Uzbekistan gas-to-liquids facility

Uzbekistan Gas-to-Liquid (GTL) Facility

Air Products signed an investment agreement with the Government of the Republic of Uzbekistan and Uzbekneftegaz JSC ("UNG”) to acquire, own and operate a natural gas-to-syngas processing facility in Qashqadaryo Province, Uzbekistan for US$1 billion. The natural gas-to-syngas industrial complex is an integral part of state-owned energy company UNG's multi-billion gas-to-liquid (GTL) facility―one of the most technologically advanced energy production plants in the world―producing 1.5 million tonnes per year of high value-add synthetic fuels for domestic use and potential export. 

Under the purchase agreement, Air Products will acquire, own and operate two large-scale air separation units, two large-scale auto-thermal reforming units, and a hydrogen production unit within the Uzbekistan GTL complex and supply oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and syngas under a long-term, take-or-pay/fixed fee contract to UNG. UNG will supply the feedstock natural gas and utilities, and offtake all products. 

The project is fully aligned with Air Products’ core industrial gas business and competencies. It will enable UNG to focus on producing low-cost, high-purity fuels and the Republic of Uzbekistan to meet its growing energy production and societal needs.
