Welcome to the Gas and Fuels Research Center (GFRC)! The GFRC is a Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) center that has been created to provide research, educational, and outreach services in the area of gas and fuels. These activities and services support the substantial growth shale and natural gas exploration, production, processing, and monetization, especially in the United States and in Qatar. More than $100 billion will be spent over the next decade in the area of shale- and natural-gas monetization. There is a critical need to support this growing industry and to offer novel approaches to its sustainable development. The GFRC aims to serve as a global leader in this area.
The GFRC is supported by a wide variety of skilled researchers, scholars, and state-of-the art resources and facilities at Texas A&M University’s campuses in Doha, Qatar, and in College Station, Texas. These two campuses serve the stated goals of Qatar to be the “Gas Capital of the World” and Texas to be the “Energy Capital of the World.” The GFRC is delighted to work closely with world leading scientists, researchers, industrial partners, and government agencies to develop and sustain state-of-the-art technologies in gas and fuels production and processing, to provide world class research labs and facilities to serve research and industrial needs, to educate the next generation of leaders in gas and fuels, and to provide industry with skilled engineers and scientists capable of supporting and advancing the gas and fuels market. We look forward to collaborating with talents and leaders in academia, industry, and government in a true partnership to achieve advancement and make a difference in the area of gas and fuels.
