Calumet Specialty Products Partners invests $25M in Louisiana gas-to-liquids joint venture

10 June 2014

Calumet Specialty Products Partners, L.P., an independent producer of specialty hydrocarbon and fuel products, will invest $25 million as a joint venture partner in the construction of the Juniper GTL commercial gas-to-liquids (GTL) plant in Louisiana (earlier post). The small-scale GTL plant is expected to produce 1,100 barrels per day of refined products, including waxes, drilling fluids, distillate and naphtha, from natural gas.

The Lake Charles, Louisiana plant, which is expected to be operational by late 2015, has a total estimated cost of $135 million. The brownfield plant will be owned and operated by Juniper GTL LLC, a company also co-owned by Portugal-based SGC Energia and Texas-based Great Northern Project Development and will be funded through a combination of equity and senior secured debt. Calumet intends to invest $25 million in exchange for an equity interest of approximately 22% in the joint venture.

The Juniper GTL process starts with the reforming of natural gas into a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide. These gases are then sent to a reactor, where they combine into a paraffinic liquid through the Fischer-Tropsch (FT) reaction in SGC Energia’s XTLH process.

The resulting liquid is ultimately refined by distillation and hydrogenation. The whole process, guaranteed under a single GTL license, focuses on the reliable, profitable production of high quality specialty and fuels products.
