Pearl GTL is a unique world scale Gas-To-Liquids (GTL) Complex that integrates production from two offshore platforms to products that can be sold directly into the energy, oil products and chemicals markets. It is one of the biggest and most complex mega projects that has been implemented in the Energy industry to date and with it, the partnership of QP and Shell has taken a bold step: the success of Pearl GTL is fostered in many ways in development and integration of right leadership across all parties culminating in a Flawless Startup followed by Flawless Manufacturing.
