Inside Pearl GTL

Pearl GTL - overview

Pearl GTL is a world-scale project located in Ras Laffan Industrial City, 80km north of Doha, Qatar.

A smooth start-up

The Pearl team checked thousands of pieces of equipment as they worked to breathe life into the plant.

Safety record

Through teamwork and an imaginative approach to training, the Pearl GTL project set a safety record.

Producing water in the desert

Water is a resource that is hard to come by in Qatar’s desert climate. The Pearl GTL plant produces more water than gas-to-liquids products.

Sulphur products

At Pearl GTL, Qatar, we have built one of the world’s largest processing plants to turn sulphur from the giant North Field gas field into widely used products.

A man-made spring in Qatar

Shell’s Pearl GTL plant in Qatar produces water which is then recycled to avoid the need for fresh supplies – crucial in a country where every drop of water counts.
