Natural gas and synthetic fuel

Severe-duty challenges

Synthetic fuels
Converting gas to liquid and back, then transporting it across aging pipelines is quite a maintenance challenge. So is synthetic fuel production from coal, shale and tar sands. Crude oil price spikes have made synthetic fluids/fuels cost-competitive, but processing equipment still handles tough applications and endures harsh operating conditions.
