Experimental studies of high pressure catalytic processes of natural gas conversion to synthesis gas were carried out. The reaction mechanism of steam methane reforming was suggested. Kinetic model corresponding to the mechanism proposed was developed. Unknown model parameters were estimated by least squares method. A good agreement was shown between the model predicted and experimental results obtained in plug flow reactor in a wide range of temperatures of 750-1050 oC, pressures of 0.1-4.5 MPa, and volumetric flow rates of 400 – 1200 h–1. A Bartlett criterion was used to prove the adequacy of given kinetic model to experimental data. The model of catalytic reactor of synthesis gas production was suggested and the design of pilot-scale reactor with syngas productivity of 2000000 m3/year was calculated. Energy-saving chemical technological scheme of the process of syngas production was proposed.
