At Linc Energy, we offer a cleaner, more affordable and safer energy alternative to reliance on foreign oil and gas supply and we can do it using a country’s domestic resources.
How? Through our proven, world-leading underground coal gasification (UCG) technology, which - when applied to Linc Energy’s downstream applications such as Gas to Liquids (GTL), power generation and Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) processes - can provide a long term, inter-generational, reliable and affordable alternative energy resource.
Linc Energy has spent over a decade perfecting these world-class technologies and we are now taking them to the world. Our goal is to empower nations to be energy self-sufficient.
Linc Energy has successfully combined and demonstrated UCG and GTL technologies at our Chinchilla Demonstration Facility in Australia.
Since the Demonstration Facility was established in 1999, we have developed and operated five successive UCG gasifiers and a GTL pilot plant. We have refined the process to a point where we can produce syngas in around 60 minutes, from coal seam to output.
Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) is the process of extracting coal from the ground without mining it in the traditional sense.
In the simplest terms, the coal is heated and transformed underground to produce a synthesis gas (syngas), which is extracted through a well and utilised for power generation or as feedstock in the production of liquid fuels, fertilisers, or other chemical products.
