TEES center for gas and fuels research established in Qatar

Texas A&M University at Qatar has established a new center in the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) after approval from the Board fo Regents of The Texas A&M University System.

The TEES Gas and Fuels Research Center (GFRC) is a multidisciplinary research center led by Texas A&M at Qatar involving 19 professors from Texas A&M’s main campus in College Station and the Qatar campus, and represents different engineering programs, including chemical engineering, petroleum engineering, materials engineering and mechanical engineering.

The center’s key objective is to lead the integrated research activities and the resources of Texas A&M to support shale gas and natural gas exploration, production and monetization activities both in the United States and in Qatar. The center of excellence involves leading scientists and researchers utilizing state-of-art research labs and facilities. It will also support the U.S. shale gas evolution and will be a part of Texas A&M at Qatar’s Research Strategic Plant to support Qatar National Vision 2030.

The TEES Gas and Fuels Research Center has just started and lessons learned from Qatar’s experience in natural gas monetization will be a major focus as Qatar is home to the world’s largest facilities in gas-to-liquid (GTL) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) production, in addition to a well-integrated supply chain of chemicals and petrochemicals.

TEES is an engineering research agency of the State of Texas and a member of The Texas A&M University System.
