Abstract in another language

Huge amounts of natural gas are found in remote areas, e.g. in the State of Qatar. The economic utilization is limited by its costly transportation. A solution of this problem could be the conversion to liquid hydrocarbons by Fisch-Tropsch-synthesis. In contrast to the common philosophy of constructing chemical plants of high efficiency, i.e. of high investment costs in order to keep energy and material costs down, we think that for countries in remote areas - with low prices of energy, respectively of natural - the only economic solution is a low-cost technology, even if the conversion efficiency is quite low.
