Design starts for coal gasification plant

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Apr. 22 -- ConocoPhillips and Fluor Corp., under an alliance agreement, are performing the front-end engineering design (FEED) of a coal gasification process for the Southern Illinois Clean Energy Center (SICEC) to be located at a coal mine in Williamson County, Ill. The SICEC project will be designed to process Illinois coal into 95 MMcfd of pipeline quality gas and generate 600 Mw of electricity.

The facility will use ConocoPhillips's proprietary E-Gas Technology, which incorporates a gasification system design that can be applied in conjunction with gas turbine and steam power generation in an integrated gasification-combined cycle configuration to produce electric power, synthesis gas, hydrogen, and steam. The FEED package design will use Siemens SGT6-5000F combustion turbines for the facility.

Key funding for the project was provided by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity and the Illinois Clean Coal Review Board.
