Title: Production of diesel fuel from light olefins

Mobile Research and Development Corporation has developed a catalytic process for converting light olefinic compounds to high quality gasoline and distillate. The process has been named Mobil Olefin to Gasoline and Distillate (MOGD) Process. Based on the Mobile zeolite catalyst ZSM-5, light olefins can be shape selectively oligomerized to higher molecular weight iso-olefins. In the gasoline boiling range, these olefins have a high octane number and for the diesel fuel range product a high cetane number and low pour point following hydrogenation. Through normally designed to process propylene or butylene, MOGD is applicable to a wide range of feed streams ranging from ethylene to 400/sup 0/F endpoint olefinic naphtha. The process has been tested using commercially-produced catalyst in refinery scale equipment.
