Brief account of the Carthage Hydrocol, Inc., development at Brownsville utilizing a modified Fischer-Tropsch process. The plant will process 64,000,000 cu. ft. of dry gas/day, yielding 3.84 and 0.78 gal. respectively of gasoline and Diesel fuel/1,000 cu. ft. of gas. Development of the process is traced with special reference to the production of cheap O2 and the conversion of CH4 into CO and H2 by the direct reaction of CH4 and O2.
