"The Pearl GTL project will play an important role in further enhancing our diversification of the North Field gas utilization and will support the optimization of Qatar's competitive position in the world markets by supplying high quality GTL products," Qatari Energy Minister Mohammed Al Sada said.

The Shell project has been conducted with its state-owned partner, Qatar Petroleum. The GTL facility, which produces diesel and lubricant oil, was expected to operate a second train by 2012.
