The light picture is of a full scale plan of the proposed OLTIN YO'L GTL plant in Shurtan, Uzbekistan. The record attempt, which broke the previous record of 50,010 LED lights, was in recognition of the launch of OLTIN YO'L GTL.

OLTIN YO'L GTL is a joint venture between Uzbekneftegaz, Sasol and PETRONAS, and will produce a range of high-value product streams through gas-to-liquids technology.

"We are delighted with this achievement. GTL is a leading light in the global energy landscape and it is through this spirit of innovation that will see Uzbekistan become a global destination of cleaner, high-value energy solutions," said James Vaughan, General Director, OLTIN YO'L GTL.

The record attempt saw 24 kilometres of lighting with 1,012,840 LED lights and 14 kilometres of power cables used. It also needed 302 kilowatts of power from three generators, a railway station and a nearby gas and chemicals plant.
