GTL-fuelled cars on display at City Center Mall

Doha • Qatar Petroleum (QP) and its partners Shell and Sasol Chevron, opened an exhibition showcasing the characteristics of gas to liquid (GTL) fuel at the City Center Mall yesterday in continuing with the activities associated with the recently launched campaign to promote Qatar as the GTL capital of the world.

The exhibit features two unique GTL fuelled vehicles including the Oryx, a Toyota land cruiser, which participated in Sasol Chevron's GTL challenge, an 11,000km symbolic journey from south Africa to Qatar, and the Audi R10 TDI, which won the Le Mans 24 hour endurance race in June 2006 using Shell V-power diesel containing GTL fuel.

GTL fuel is produced from natural gas. It is colourless, odourless and virtually free of sulphur and aromatics, and can play a significant role in reducing local air pollution in major cities.

The fuel can also be used in conventional diesel engines without any need to modify the engine, or to make changes to the existing fuelling infrastructure.

Opportunity is knocking.
