Carbon Sciences' miniGTL Plant to Feature Modular Design
Modular Design and Construction Will Allow for Portability, as Well
as Substantial Cost Savings.
SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/12 -- Carbon Sciences
Inc. (OTCBB: CABN), provider of a complete solution for transforming
abundant and affordable natural gas into clean burning gasoline and
other transportation fuels, today announced that its miniGTL
("gas-to-liquids") plant will feature a modular design. The company's
management believes that modular design and construction will allow
for portability, as well as cost savings.
According to Byron Elton, CEO of Carbon Sciences, "A crucial feature
of our miniGTL plant design, is its modular nature, which allows the
matching of the equipment to the quantity of natural gas and allows
for portability if gas flow declines over time. We estimate that a
miniGTL plant producing approximately 1,000 barrels per day of
transportation fuel can be contained in as few as 60 modules. The
modular design enables rail car or truck transportation and
installation to remote sites with limited infrastructure. Modular
construction additionally allows us to manufacture in low cost
production centers, such as Houston, and then transport the modules
to the gas field, resulting in a substantial cost savings over
"This technology and process is a project enabler, unlocking the
potential of natural gas sources previously considered to be
economically stranded. Unlike large scale GTL plants, such as those
developed by Royal Dutch Shell and Sasol that require large gas
fields, miniGTL plants in the 1,000 to 2,000 barrel per day range can
be built to monetize small to medium size fields, which account for
nearly 40% of gas fields in the world," Elton added.
About Carbon Sciences Inc.
Carbon Sciences offers a complete solution for transforming an
abundant and affordable supply of natural gas into clean burning
gasoline and other transportation fuels. While large producers, such
as Shell and Sasol, have built and operate world scale gas-to-liquids
(GTL) plants for large natural gas fields, our solution is engineered
to cost effectively produce gasoline from the thousands of available
small and medium size natural gas fields. Our first generation GTL
solution integrates best of breed and proven technologies, including
the ExxonMobil MTG process, to produce ready to use gasoline. We are
also developing a proprietary technology to enable a
second-generation GTL solution that will produce even cleaner
gasoline by using captured CO2 or low value, high CO2 content natural
gas as part of the process. Our technology can also be used to
transform natural gas into other valuable, large volume products,
such as hydrogen, methanol, ammonia, solvents and plastics.
