Main ForumLINC starts UCG program in South Australia

  • Linc Energy's proposed first commercial UCG operation in the Walloway Basin is the key focus for the next few years.

    Exploration in the Walloway Basin to date has confirmed lignite resources with an exploration target of 1.0 to 1-.3 billion tonnes in accordance with the JORC Code. Work is now focused on appraising the hydrogeology and overburden material as part of the UCG site evaluation process. UCG Generalor 4, at the Chinchilla Demonstration Facility, provides Linc Energy with significant information to establish commercial operations in South Australia. lt is Linc Energy's current intention to commission a UCG trial generator by the end of the year in SA, subject to results of the current drill program.

    Early exploration results indicate that the resource has the potentially to support an initial 200*megawatt power generation project. Long term project plans aim to expand the initial power development to a 500 megawatt power project, supporting a 'Gas to Liquids' facility producing transport fuel, such as diesel and jet fuel. The operating life of the resource is anticipated to be more than 50 years.

    The proposed project stages are anticipated as:

    Stage 1: Pre-production - Construction and operation of UCG Generator 5

    Stage 2: Power generation - Production of about L5 petajoules per annum of syngas for a power generation project of up to 250 megawatts

    Stage 3: UCG to GTL- Expansion of gas production and power generation to support a large synthetic fuel facility.
