Our Work

TransGas Development Systems, LLC, is a New York City based company that specializes in the development of complex projects as strategic solutions for national governments and private entities seeking to accelerate economic growth, with greater autonomy and sustainability.

TransGas is an affiliate of Gas Alternatives Systems, Inc, which was founded in 1981 by America’s entrepreneur and energy project developer, Mr. Adam Victor.

National governments worldwide seek TransGas’ project development advice in the development of clean projects that generate solutions to various strategic national interest objectives, such as:

"I want to be able to use my coal reserves cleanly."

TransGas develops projects that employ gasification technology to utilize coal in a well-proven and extremely clean and competitive chemical process.

"We have to support the agricultural growth in a sustained way."

The TransGas projects reduce the vulnerability of the agricultural sector by guaranteeing a domestic fertilizer source with price and supply certainty, reducing the dependence on unstable imports.

"My national industry is very concerned about the high price of imported chemical inputs"

TransGas offers strategic tools to utilize low-cost domestic mineral resources in a smarter way, ensuring national production of the building blocks of industrial growth, such as Syngas, methanol, sulfur, LPG, and pure industrial H2.


Our Histry

An energy entrepreneur and visionary, Mr. Adam Victor.

In 1981, Mr. Adam Victor founded TransGas' affiliate, Gas Alternative Systems, Inc., which developed, financed, constructed, and operated cogeneration facility in New York for over two decades. This was the nation's first cogeneration facility to:

  1. Purchase its own 20-year fuel supply
  2. Receive Canadian National Energy Board permission to export Canadian natural gas into the United States at a price below the Toronto City Gate Price
  3. Receive U.S. government EIA approval to Import Canadian Natural Gas into the United States
  4. Build its own dedicated natural gas pipeline lateral to bypass the local LDC and directly interconnect with the national natural gas transmission lines

TransGas Development Systems, LLC is one of Gas Alternative Systems' affiliates founded in 2005. Its initial goal was to supply fuel at a fixed price for one of Gas Alternative's facilities. The company's strategic goals were later modified in 2008 to produce gasoline in and around America's coal reserves. With this aim, TransGas Development assembled a team of industry experts to design coal gasification plants that convert coal into gasoline using a clean and sustainable method.

Mr. Victor serves as the President and Chief Executive Officer of TransGas Development Systems, based in New York City. Mr. Victor has over three decades of experience in energy development and commands a long and impressive career in the oil and gas, coal, and mining industries. This longtime resident of the New York metropolitan area, regularly works with corporate and government entities in the United States and abroad.

Upon graduating from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering 1974, Mr. Victor worked in Saudi Arabia as a Drilling Engineer in the Ar'Rub Al'Khali Desert for ARAMCO. In 1976, he returned to the United States to pursue an MBA in International Finance & Strategic Planning from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

After completing his MBA, Mr. Victor started work as a mining engineer in the gold mines of southern Africa with ANGLO AMERICAN and later LONRHO. After the completion of his last assignment he returned to the United States and in 1981 founded Gas Alternative Systems, Inc. through which he consulted and led development on a wide range of power plant projects in New York and California.

Victor has been supervising operations at TransGas Development Systems, LLC, since 2005. He focuses his time and energy on a variety of coal gasification and energy development projects.
