Royal Dutch Shell announced its plans for a major maintenance shutdown of its Train 2 facility at its Pearl gas-to-liquids (GTL) plant in Qatar for up to two months in March 2016, reported Reuters.

Deputy Country Chairman for Shell, Rob Sherwin explained that Train 1 had gone down for maintenance earlier this year.

According to Trade Arabia, Pearl GTL’s two identical trains have a total capacity of 140,000b/d of GTL products, and 120,000b/d of natural gas liquids and ethane, Shell stated on its website.

Pearl is the world’s largest GTL plant that produces diesel, natural gas liquids and ethane by stripping methane from wellhead gas and combining it with oxygen.
