Market Assessment of Natural Gas-Derived Products
North AmericaOctober 22, 2020
K&M was engaged by US DOE to analyze three energy markets — transportation fuels, power generation, and chemical feedstock — to determine the economic feasibility of utilizing natural gas-derivatives. K&M examined production of methanol, MTBE, higher alcohols, gasoline, CNG, and LNG for the transportation market. Production and use of methanol and ammonia in the chemical feedstock market and use of natural gas for power generation were assessed. The use of both high and low quality gas (containing CO2 and N2 levels above normal pipeline quality standards) as a process feed stream was evaluated.
