2489. OBERFELL, G. G., AND THOMAS, R. W. Picture for Liquefied Petroleum Gases. Oil gas Jour., vol. 45, No. 5, 1946, pp. 60-61.
Condensed paper presented at the annual meeting of the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association. A recent development that enters the liquefied-petroleum-gas picture is the so-called Fischer-Tropsch process, which uses natural gas as raw material for the production of heavier hydrocarbons. The production of gasoline and other products by this method may yield sizable quantities of C4H10 and C3H8. Therefore, installations of this process for the production of petroleum products are not expected to diminish the overall supply of liquefied petroleum gases.
