Our Vision

At Sierra Group we believe it is all of our duties to leave the world in better shape for future generations. We understand that two of the biggest issues facing those future generations are energy  consumption and climate change. Without question we consume energy on a massive scale. With each passing year, those demands increase. Our belief is that we can address those demands with viable options through human ingenuity and perseverance. Providing financially sound, and ecologically responsible solutions is not just our mission, it’s our way of life. That’s how we are Reimagining Energy.

There are tens of thousands of shut in Natural Gas wells all over the US, Canada and Mexico. These wells are called "Stranded Gas Wells". Entire fields exist and are stranded due to lack of accessibility to gas lines to take gas to market. North Dakota alone burns off tens of billions of cubic feet of natural gas each year through the flaring of stranded gas wells. The CPGTL are designed to be portable, allowing them to be transported to the sites of Stranded Gas Wells to convert the stranded natural gas to CPGTL crude, which can then be transported to market and shipped by rail or sea safely with minimal exposure to the environment, hence our technology is Green! Federal Green Energy Tax Credits may be available with an ownership position.

Portable Fisher-Tropsch Application

Fischer Tropsch technology is over 80 years old. The process was used in WWII by Germany to produce over 36 million barrels of synthetic crude per year. There are a number of huge facilities in use today in the Middle East, South Africa, Australia, and Indonesia. Most cover areas the size of a small town in the US. Present technology and innovation allows us to build and mass produce our patented portable CPGTL systems economically without restriction as to placement and with little to no environmental impact.

Featured Project

Conversion Pro GTL

The CPGTL units are not stationary units. This mobile processing equipment is designed to convert natural gas hydrocarbons in to CPGTL#1 Clean Diesel or JP8 fuel(s) for re-sale. We believe an economically viable quantity of premium CPGTL fuels can be expected to be produced with CPGTL equipment and operating methods. Each CPGTL is approximately 8’ X 40’ and is easily transported by flatbed semi-trailer. Portability is a crucial component of these units. CPGTL are manufactured using readily accessible, highly durable materials that are commonly used in oil drilling and production operations with long-life and ease of maintenance in mind.

What is GTL fuel?
GTL fuel is a synthetic fuel, produced from natural gas by chemical transformation.
How easy is GTL to make?
GTL fuel can be made from any hydrocarbon – gas, coal, biomass – the daily supply of which could create 27 million barrels of GTL fuel each day.
Is GTL fuel clean?
GTL fuel is clean: it is non-toxic, biodegradable, and does not contain nitrogen or sulfur.
What about GTL diesel fuel?
GTL Diesel is pollution free with no sulfur, aromatics, or toxic ingredients; simply hydrogen and carbon.
Natural gas vs Petroleum based fuels.
Fuels synthesized from natural gas burn much cleaner and require less engine maintenance.
What is the carbon footprint of GTL fuel?
GTL synthesized fuels contain 90% less carbon soot and 90% less carbon monoxide than petroleum based fuels.
What is the efficiency of GTL diesel fuel?
Blending just 20 percent GTL diesel with conventional diesel results in a fuel that exceeds nearly all international environmental standards for 2016.
Does GTL Diesel meet emission standards?
GTL Diesel enables engines to meet national 2007 and 2010
heavy-duty diesel engine emission standards.
Does it cost a lot more to use GTL diesel fuel?
The use of GTL Diesel fuel requires no additional capital or infrastructure changes.
What is the impact on newer engines?
GTL fuels enable engine manufacturers to develop new improved engine technologies with better performance and lower emissions.
What does it take to refine GTL fuel?
The technologies to manufacture GTL gasoline and diesel – refining crude oil – and to distribute them to end-users through pipelines, road and rail tankers are well known, cost-effective, and largely in place, making GTL a realizable alternative fuel option.
Is GTL fuel approved for use in California?
GTL has been determined by the State of California to be the only fuel with a "net benefit" for society.
What is the market for future GTL products?
With the vast array of products produced through GTL, the market is virtually infinite.
Does GTL improve mileage?
Engines using GTL can experience improved fuel mileage by up to 10%.
