Title: Coal Gasification Developments: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Jack Huebler, C. L. Tsaros

Article Type: Meeting abstract


The production of pipeline quality gas from coal will become an important source of supplementary gas by 1990 when more than 3 Tcf/year are expected to be available. By the year 2000 the total may reach 8 Tcf/year; that is, 40% of present gas consumption. Elements such as coal quality and cost, plant location, water environment protection, and others contribute to the cost of gas.
