Russian chemists have learned how to turn associated petroleum gas into a valuable fuel

According to experts' estimates, a huge amount of associated petroleum gas released in the process of oil extraction and distillation is burned in Russia every year, which is comparable to about 30-40 million tons of oil. But quite recently, chemical scientists of the Institute of Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry have succeeded in developing a unique technology for the extraction of high-quality gasoline from petroleum gas directly at oil production sites.

The revolutionary method is based on nuclear technology. At the beginning, with the help of an accelerator, the electrons are accelerated to the required value, after which they "process" the oil gas. The flow of electrons activates radiation-chemical processes that turn it into high-quality petrochemical products.

Among the products obtained as a result of such processing are A-105 and A-110 gasoline, aviation kerosene and diesel fuel of the highest quality.

The accelerator is quite compact and can easily fit, for example, on a truck platform, which will allow the equipment to be delivered directly to the wells, where the resulting gasoline will then be pumped, significantly increasing the quality of oil.
