A process for converting natural gas to synthesis gas includes the steps of subjecting a homogeneous mixture of natural gas and air to partial oxidation in the presence of a bifunctional partial oxidation/steam reforming catalyst and a sufficient amount of water to control reaction temperature, and subjecting the resulting product to steam reforming in order to substantially completely convert unconverted alkanes to carbon monoxide and hydrogen.
