Swan Hills Synfuels, privately held and based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, is focused on the development of clean energy conversion facilities which convert low-cost energy supplies into clean high-value products. There are two main components to Swan Hills Synfuels’ business: gas conversion and gas manufacturing/supply.

Gas Conversion: Swan Hills Synfuels’ gas conversion developments will convert gas into higher value products. These gas conversion facilities will use pipeline quality sweet natural gas as their input. Gas conversion developments use proven, well-established processes in their operation. Natural gas producers could be able to realize global commodity price-based netbacks for their natural gas by financially contracting for “tolling” capacity in the gas conversion facilities.

Gas Supply: Swan Hills Synfuels has developed expertise and operating experience in deep In-situ Coal Gasification (ISCG).

Benefits to Albertans: Swan Hills Synfuels’ gas conversion developments will create a new clean energy industry in Alberta. By using natural gas to make higher value products, we are adding value to Alberta’s natural gas resource here at home and diversifying the Alberta economy.

Albertans will benefit from this project on a number of levels: significant value-add processing and upgrading of Alberta’s natural gas resources here in Alberta, job creation, and an increased participation in global high value product markets.

Environmentally responsible facilities

  • Energy conversion developments using proven processes which meet the most stringent standards for environmental performance.
  • Sweet pipeline quality natural gas feedstock is a much cleaner form of energy than crude oil.
  • Synthetic gas from ISCG, combined with CCS, has excellent environmental attributes, including significantly reduced air emissions, non-fresh water use, and minimal surface disturbance.

New clean energy conversion industry with enormous potential in Alberta

  • New high value-add processing and upgrading facilities operating in Alberta that could provide natural gas producers with global high value product pricing netbacks for their natural gas.
