Which is difficult to reform Naphtha or Methane
Why can't we use the same catalyst used in Naphtha Reforming for Methane Reforming in the primary Reforming ?

Naphtha is a little more difficult as it requires feed vaporization and a Prereformer, which methane does not require.

Some methane reformers however also have a Prereformer.

 

Both are possible, choice between designing a reformer for naphtha or methane feed is purely economical.

 

I don't think there is a difference in catalyst in the reformer furnace tubes.
