|Title:||PROCESS FOR REMOVING HEAT FROM AN OLIGOMERIZATION REACTION|
A process for removing heat from an oligomerization reaction includes introducing a gaseous ethylene stream at a first temperature to an oligomerization reactor, and oligomerizing at least a portion of the ethylene to provide a linear alpha olefin product, wherein the oligomerizing generates a heat of reaction. The process further includes continuously injecting a cooling liquid including C2-4 olefins into the reactor. Injecting the cooling liquid into the reactor removes at least a portion of the heat of reaction generated during the oligomerization reaction.
