Child Edward T: Production of methane-rich gas. Texaco Development Corporation, Whaley T H, Ries C G, Brent Albert, November 25, 1975: US3922148 (242 worldwide citation)

This is an improved continuous process for producing a clean methane-rich gas stream without the concomitant formation of particulate carbon which would ordinarily decrease the efficiency of the process and shorten the life of the catalyst. By-product superheated steam is simultaneously produced at ...
