Default Natural gas converted to diesel fuel

There was an interesting article in the Tuesday Feb. 15, 2002 Wall Street Journal on the front page. The reporter is Russell Gold. The title is "Power Play - In Qatar, Oil Firms Make Huge Bet On Alternative Fuel - Supporters Say New Diesel Is Cleaner, More Efficient; Untested On Large Scale..."

I hope some of you have the chance to read it. It seems that Exxon Mobil is making a $15 billion dollar investment in Qatar to build a facility to convert huge natural gas reserves to a diesel fuel.

The technology is called Gas-to-Liquid or GTL. Diesel has already been made from natural gas, but the new thing is technological advances and the economy of scale.
