A natural gas to liquids process model for optimal operation

Panahi, Mehdi, Rafiee, Ahmad, Skogestad, Sigurd and Hillestad, Magne 2011. A natural gas to liquids process model for optimal operation. Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research 51 (1) , pp. 425-433. 10.1021/ie2014058

The design and optimization of a natural gas to hydrocarbon liquids (GTL) process is considered, mainly from the view of maximizing the variable income during operation. Autothermal reforming (ATR) is used for synthesis gas production. The kinetic model for Fischer–Tropsch (FT) reactions is the one given by Iglesia et al. for a cobalt-based FT reactor. For the product distribution, three alternative expressions for the chain growth factor α are compared.
