Abstract

Modern approaches to the utilization of hydrocarbon gases are analyzed. Such gases are a byproduct from the production of oil, shale oil, and rich natural gas, and are most often subjected to flare combustion at production fields.

Keywords:

associated petroleum gas methane–hydrogen mixtures mild steam reforming low-temperature steam conversion 

Notes

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
