KTE is an expert company in refinery processes and specializes the conversion of natural gas, associated gas or syngas into liquid fuel such as gasoline or diesel.

The conversion is done using a reactor for the Fischer-Tropsch process, to receive a mix of distillates.
The product is then cracked and distilled into the following:

  • Diesel
  • Gasoline
  • Jet fuel
  • Synthetic fuels
  • LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas)
  • Olefins (Byproduct, used in the petrochemical industry)

Among others, KTE has a wide experience in the energy and petrochemical industries, gaining international experience
through our work for both the Israeli Oil Refineries (ORL) and the Sasol Company in South Africa.
Today we are carrying out feasibility studies and planning & process design of GTL projects, working
with Israeli and international companies and organization, including the Israeli Ministry of Infrastructure.
