        Ratio H2: CO was varied from 0.97:1 to 2.96:1.  The experimental data are reported.  When CO is present in excess of the optimum ratio of CO:H2=1:2, the production of gaseous olefins and CO2 is accelerated, but that of gaseous paraffins is retarded.  When an excess of H2 is present, the reverse is the case.  The oil production is increased with increasing CO concentration.  A theoretical explanation of the reaction mechanism is attempted.  Dilution of the raw gas with N2 increased gaseous olefins and CO2 and decreased the oil production owing to lowering of the partial pressure of CO.
