Our people

We are proud of our talented and energetic team.

Our employee’s experience ranges from the fundamental science to the practical delivery and operation of commercial plants.  Specialist skills include; Catalyst and reactor design and manufacturing, analytical chemistry, mechanical and processing engineering, supply chain management and plant commissioning start up and operations.  We are equally experienced in project finance and the building of long-term commercial relationships.

Commissioning team

Our commissioning team has vast experience in the commissioning and start-up of commercial projects. The team is led by two key members of staff, each of whom joined the company after more than a decade of experience on large-scale gas-to-liquids (GTL) projects with Sasol. There, one served as part of the start-up teams for new chemical technologies as well as the Oryx GTL plant in Qatar. The other was involved in the design, fabrication, start-up and operation of a range of units and technologies including a modularised regeneration system, and culminating in taking the role of lead licensor for the start-up of the Escravos GTL plant in Nigeria.

Our experienced team of operations managers, operators and engineers were integral to the successful demonstration of our technology at commercial scales at the ENVIA plant in Oklahoma City.
