Exhaust conditions encountered in compressor stations vary between fuel-lean and fuel-rich depending on the engine used. The efficacy of Pt, Pd and Pt/Pd catalysts under these different conditions and the associated kinetics are compared. Furthermore, the effect of NOx has been evaluated and byproduct formation rates determined.
