The Pearl GTL project is the largest gas to liquids conversion plant in the world and was commissioned to full capacity in 2012.

The project is a Production Sharing Agreement (PSA) between Qatar Petroleum and Shell with the primary products produced being naphtha and transport fuels with paraffins and lubricant oils as smaller by-products of the process. The transport fuel can be used in existing light and heavy diesel engines and has been shown to have a number of benefits such as lower emissions and engine performance enhancement.

Over 70,000 sq mtrs of SOLARTECH UV Curing GRP material was used on the GTL project as a protective cladding system to the various insulation materials applied.

Solartech International Ltd provided technical and training support to the 3 insulation contractors on site during the application works.
