Two fuels companies plan to jointly pursue the design and construction of a innovative refining process.
Southern California Gas Co., Los Angeles, and Oberon Fuels, a
San Diego-based low-emission alternative fuels company, plan to jointly pursue the
design and construction of a innovative refining process. The companies plan to
construct the first commercial facility in the United States to produce dimethyl
ether from natural gas for use as a transportation fuel.
The facility will be located in Southern California and produce
the ultra-clean fuel, which can be used as an alternative to diesel and propane.
It also has many non-transportation uses.
