About Expander Energy Inc.
Our revolutionary plant design combines a synthetic gas (syngas) generator (gasifier) with our Enhanced Fischer-Tropsch®(EFT®) process to produce SYNDIESEL® and SYNJET™ fuels. Expander has developed a proprietary process that enhances the existing technology used in the Fischer-Tropsch (F-T) process. Expander’s carbon utilization of feedstock significantly increases product output and eliminates low-value by-products. Our fuels can be economically delivered through existing fuel infrastructure.
Expander is planning to finalize several projects: a Gas to Liquids (GTL) plant and a Biomass to Liquids (BTL) plant to produce our high quality engineered fuels and to complete a partially upgraded bitumen study. This study is designed to show how upgrading bitumen with Expander’s FTCrude® process can convert bitumen to Bottomless 20 to 24 API Partially Upgraded Bitumen (PUB)with significant reduction in sulfur, heavy metals, naphthenic acid (TAN) and Conradson Carbon Residue (CCR), having preferred chemical and physical properties suitable for pipelining (without diluent) and refining, exceeding current Western Canadian Select (WCS) crude oil quality specifications.
Expander’s competitive advantage over standard F-T plants is our Enhanced Fischer-Tropsch® process which maximizes the production of high value diesel fuels and eliminates lower value by-products. These plants can provide superior profits at economic production rates of 300 - 20,000 bbls/day.
Our experienced team has redefined the F-T process in the area around GTL, BTL and Heavy Oil Upgrading. The opportunity with Expander’s revolutionary FTCrude® process for the Alberta Oilsands is extraordinary and can be utilized worldwide.
