    Coal (Box ; ) This secondary subject category contains material relating to the shortage of anthracite coal in the New England area in the winter of ; the funding, price guarantees, foreclosure and ultimate use of the Synthetic Fuels Corporation’s North Dakota Great Plains coal gasification project; research material.   The Alaska gas pipeline project, whose estimated cost exceeded $30 billion, was never constructed. The Great Plains project was the only coal gasification project built. 2. Each of the Great Plains partners assigned a senior officer to the Management Committee, which took an extremely active role in review, monitoring and decision-making.

    Gasification for Synthetic Fuel Production Fundamentals, Processes and Applications Posted On by cuda Review of Technologies for Gasification of Biomass and - E4tech. Coal gasification is a process whereby a hydrocarbon feedstock (coal) is converted into gaseous components by applying heat under pressure in the presence of steam. Rather than burning, most of the carbon-containing feedstock is broken apart by chemical reactions that produce "syngas." Syngas is primarily hydrogen and carbon monoxide, but the exact composition can vary.

    President Carter proposed such an agency, with powers to cut red tape and speed the development of important energy projects. They point to the Great Plains Coal Gasification Project in North.   The coal seam in the process area was also tested under “cold” conditions with controlled air and water injection to evaluate UCG potential, and extensive UCG-specific program of laboratory gasification testing of coal core samples were completed (Figs. and ).

In Decemberthe Great Plains Gasification Associates had essen- tially finished constructing the nation’s first commercial-scale coal gas- ification plant. As of JGreat Plains had contributed about $ million in equity to the project and had borrowed $ billion.

The Great Plains Gasification Project is the first commercial-sized plant to produce substitute natural gas from coal in the United States. The plant is designed to conv tons/D of North Dakota lignite into million standard cubic feet of gas per day.

Underground Coal Gasification and Combustion provides an overview of underground coal gasification technology, its current status and future directions.

Comprehensive in approach, the book covers history, science, technology, hydrogeology, rock mechanics, environmental performance, economics, regulatory and commercial aspects of UCG projects.

G.P.O. The Great Plains coal gasification project in North Dakota was 99 percent complete and essentially on schedule on Cumulative project costs were $ million less than originally estimated for this date, primarily due to reduced material, interest, and subcontractor costs.

The Great Plains Synfuels Plant (GPSP) in Beulah, North Dakota has been in operation producing synthetic natural gas (SNG) from lignite coal for 25 years and remains the only coal-to-SNG facility in the United States.

In addition to the production of SNG, the plant also produces high purity carbon dioxide (CO2), which is distributed through a pipeline to end users in Canada for enhanced oil.

The Department of Energy (DOE) has informed the Congress of its intent to sell the project to Basin and has estimated that Basin’s offer could have. In December, the U.S. House of Representatives killed a bill to provide federal loan guarantees for pioneering synfuels projects like the proposed ND coal gasification plant.

The United States Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy, through the Gasification Systems Program, is developing flexible, innovative, resilient, and transformative modular designs for converting diverse types of US domestic coal and coal blends with biomass, municipal solid waste (MSW), and waste plastics into clean synthesis gas to enable the low-cost production of electricity.

More recently, the Great Plains Coal Gasification Plant, supported by Jimmy Carter’s Synthetic Fuel Corporation, cost $5 billion thirty years ago .and natural gas have been proposed to Congress, Much of the increased coal production is expected to take place in the Northern Great Plains States of Montana, North Dakota, and Wyoming.

Of the additional million tons of annual production identified as possible or planned for the United States bymillion tons are expected to come. Transco’s $ million equity interest in the Great Plains Coal Gasification Project was in trouble even with most of its construction cost underwritten by taxpayers.
