New process development of natural gas conversion technology to liquid fuels via OCM reaction. S. Suzuki et al. Energy and Fuels., May/June 1996, 10(3), 531--536.

Existing technologies for conversion of natural gas to liquid fuels are evaluated. The development of a new process using oxidative coupling of methane (OCM) is described. The process includes a circulating fluidized bed with a riser reactor in the OCM process, a bubbling fluidized bed reactor in the oligomerization process, split feed of recycled gas into the reaction process and direct feed of the OCM/pyrolysis reactor effluent to the oligomerization reactor. The economics of the new process are compared with those of existing processes. 7 refs.
