IGCC plant with CO2 sequestration studied

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, June 21 -- An integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) project with carbon dioxide sequestration is under study in Australia.

Stanwell Corp., owned by the Queensland government, named Shell Gas & Power the preferred coal gasification technology provider for the project. It would be the world's first IGCC power generation plant to geosequester nearly all the produced CO2.

Stanwell and Shell have begun a study for the plant, which would produce synthesis gas from pulverized coal for conversion into a hydrogen-rich fuel for power turbines.

Shell, which first applied its coal gasification process in the Netherlands, has since used its technology in China, where 12 licenses have been sold over the past 2 years.

The Australian project has entered the feasibility study phase. Shell will assist with the preparation of the technical input for the plant. The study is to be completed in October.
