  • WelcomeThank you (Turkish Consulate, Suleyman, Salih, Franz)Introduce myself and Guy
  • The Gas Technology Institute (GTI)is the leading research, development, and training organization serving the global natural gas industry and energy markets. For 65 years, GTI has solved important energy and environmental challenges by developing technology-based solutions that create value for consumers, industry, and government. We have been actively involved in the development of unconventional gas in the U.S. for more than 20 years, including activities in coal bed methane, tight gas formations, and gas shales.
  • Solve important energy Contract ResearchProgram ManagementTechnical ServicesEducation and TrainingCommercial partners take our technologies to market
  • SupplyProvide a secure, stable, competitive domestic energy supply Unconventional Natural Gas Resources Be a catalyst for expanding the supply of affordable, abundant and clean-burning energyGasification of Coal and Biomass Developing efficient gasification systems that convert fossil and renewable fuels into synthesis gases for power generation, hydrogen, liquid fuels and chemicals Carbon Capture and SequestrationDeliveryAddress strategic concerns of domestic energy T&D infrastructure Safety Pipeline Integrity Cost Reduction Efficiency End UseMaintain industrial competitiveness and improve affordability and applicability of gasEfficiency and environmental Product developmentand commercializationCompetitive industry
  • One of GTI’s supply businesses is natural gas that can be generated above ground. Based on gasification of coal and renewable gas from biomass.
