// Natural Gas/ Crude Oil

  • Natural Gas/ Crude Oil Composition is relatively different based on the origin/ reservoirs
  • Unreactive hydrocarbon; HC with variable amount of  non-hydrocarbons; NHC
  • Essentially free from olefins (Question: how to get this olefins?)
  • Very low concentration of C6-C8 (aromatic HC) (Q: How to get these aromatic HC?)
  • Important as a raw material to produce syn gas mixtures (CO2 + H2) (Q: How to get these aromatic HC?)

// Natural Gas

  • Naturally occurring mixtures of light HC accompanied by some non-HC compounds
Composition of non-associated and associated natural gas (Matar and
