Prospects of Base Oil Production by GTL Technology in Russia
The article discusses the potentials of production of base oils in Russia by GTL technology. The quality of the base oils produced currently in Russian enterprises are analyzed. The possibility of producing base oils by the GTL process, taking account of the analysis of data on synthesis gas production by various conversion methods and the experience of application of GM process in foreign enterprises, is discussed. The experience of using different types of Fischer-Tropsch synthesis reactors is analyzed and, based on the obtained data, recommendations are offered for their use in Russia.
