Natural gas is improved for use as an engine fuel gas stream by treating with a membrane through which hydrogen sulfide and heavier hydrocarbons permeate preferentially. The reject gas is returned to the natural gas pipeline. The upgraded gas is used for engine fuel to operate the pipeline compressor. Treatment of the natural gas provides a cleaner, higher octane fuel for engine use, and reduces engine wear and failure.


A method of protecting a natural-gas-utilizing engine from corrosion and knock which comprises the steps of: treating a portion of a high pressure field gas stream containing primarily methane in admixture with hydrogen sulfide and/or higher hydrocarbons with a permeable membrane, wherein said membrane is relatively more permeable to said hydrogen sulfide and said higher hydrocarbons, thereby producing a reject gas stream enriched in hydrogen sulfide and/or higher hydrocarbons, and an off-gas useful as an upgraded fuel gas stream relatively depleted in h...
