Title (EN) CONVERSION OF MIXED METHANE/ETHANE STREAMS
(FR) CONVERSION DE COURANTS MIXTES COMPRENANT DU MÉTHANE ET DE L'ÉTHANE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a process for conversion of a stream comprising methane and ethane, comprising converting ethane from a stream comprising methane and ethane, in which stream the volume ratio of methane to ethane is of from 0.005:1 to 100:1, to a product having a vapor pressure at 0 °C lower than 1 atmosphere, resulting in a stream comprising methane and the product having a vapor pressure at 0 °C lower than 1 atmosphere; separating the product having a vapor pressure at 0 °C lower than 1 atmosphere from the stream comprising methane and the product having a vapor pressure at 0 °C lower than 1 atmosphere, resulting in a stream comprising methane; and chemically converting methane from the stream comprising methane, or feeding methane from the stream comprising methane to a network that provides methane as energy source, or liquefying methane from the stream comprising methane.
(FR) L'invention concerne un processus de conversion d'un courant comprenant du méthane et de l'éthane, ledit procédé consistant à convertir l'éthane présent dans le courant comprenant du méthane et de l'éthane, ledit courant ayant un rapport de volume méthane/éthane de 0,005:1 à 100:1, pour obtenir un produit ayant une pression de vapeur à 0 °C inférieure à 1 atmosphère, qui résulte en un courant comprenant du méthane et le produit ayant une pression de vapeur à 0 °C inférieure à 1 atmosphère ; à séparer le produit ayant une pression de vapeur à 0 °C inférieure à 1 atmosphère issu du courant comprenant le méthane et le produit ayant une pression de vapeur à 0 °C inférieure à 1 atmosphère, ce qui donne un courant comprenant du méthane ; et à convertir par voie chimique le méthane provenant du courant comprenant le méthane, ou à introduire du méthane provenant du courant comprenant le méthane dans un réseau produisant du méthane comme source d'énergie, ou à liquéfier le méthane provenant du courant comprenant du méthane.
