The studies and analysis performed in this report were made to improve the understanding of blending an Iso-Paraffinic Kerosene IPK produced from natural gas via Fischer-Tropsch FT synthesis with several petroleum-derived fuels on the resulting chemical, physical and Fit-For-Purpose FFP properties. The IPK had a similar distillation range to a typical jet fuel and high iso-normal alkane ratio. Blending showed a linear dependence in the specification and non-specification properties with blend ratio. Determination and understanding of this dependence allows for the prediction of anticipated fuel properties during blending and for statistical analysis using historical fuel property distribution data to be performed to investigate expected fuel properties and variability as a function of blend ratio.
