Title (EN) PRODUCING LIQUID HYDROCARBONS
(FR) PRODUCTION D'HYDROCARBURES LIQUIDES
Abstract:
(EN) Natural gas is processed to generate longer-chain hydrocarbons by first reacting (20) the methane to generate a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen, and subjecting this mixture to Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (30) to generate longer-chain hydrocarbons. This produces a range of hydrocarbons including waxy hydrocarbons. The liquid product from the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis is then reacted with hydrogen in a compact catalytic reactor (50, 52) at a substantially constant temperature in the range 400° to 45O0C and an elevated pressure above 80 atmospheres so it undergoes hydrocracking. Remaining gases are recycled (56) to the hydrocracking reactor, and the liquid product is processed to remove a residual waxy fraction. This residual waxy fraction (62) may be returned to the hydrocracking reactor, and may be used as a coolant for the hydrocracking process.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé dans lequel du gaz naturel est traité pour produire des hydrocarbures à chaînes longues, consistant à faire réagir (20) le méthane pour produire un mélange de monoxyde de carbone et d'hydrogène, puis à soumettre le mélange obtenu à une synthèse de Fischer-Tropsh (30) pour produire des hydrocarbures à chaînes longues. Ce procédé permet de produire des hydrocarbures à chaînes longues, y compris des hydrocarbures paraffineux. Le procédé consiste ensuite à faire réagir le produit liquide issu de la synthèse de Fischer-Tropsch avec de l'hydrogène dans un réacteur catalytique compact (50, 52) à une température sensiblement constante comprise entre 400 °C et 450 °C et à une pression élevée supérieur à 80 atmosphères afin qu'il subisse un hydrocraquage. Les gaz restants sont recyclés (56) dans le réacteur d'hydrocraquage et le produit liquide est traité pour retirer une fraction paraffinique résiduelle. Cette fraction paraffinique résiduelle (62) peut être réutilisée dans le réacteur d'hydrocraquage comme élément de refroidissement pour le procédé d'hydrocraquage.
