Underground Coal Gasification in the UK. Summary ; The United Kingdom is well placed within Europe in having large reserves of indigenous coal both onshore and offshore in the southern North Sea. These reserves have the potential to provide security of future energy supplies long after oil and natural gas are exhausted. Traditional mining methods however are not suited to working offshore ...

Underground coal gasification (UCG) should not be confused with hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, or coal-bed methane (CBM) extraction. Hydraulic fracturing and CBM are entirely different technologies that are both covered by a separate moratorium on unconventional oil and gas (UOG).

Underground Coal Gasification | Frack Off

Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) is a process for exploiting coal that cannot be mined because the seams are too deep, thin or fractured. The process involves using the same sort of drilling technology usually used for fracking to get air/oxygen into the coal seam and then set the seam on fire. By controlling the amount of oxygen injected it is then possible to only partially burn the coal ...

Coal gasification - Wikipedia

Coal gasification is the process of producing syngas—a mixture consisting primarily of carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen (H 2), carbon dioxide (CO 2), natural gas (CH 4), and water vapour (H 2 O)—from coal and water, air and/or oxygen.. Historically, coal was gasified to produce coal gas, also known as "town gas".Coal gas is combustible and was used for heating and municipal lighting, before ...

• Coal is the UK's most abundant hydrocarbon resource with more than 17 billion tonnes of coal suitable for Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) identified in the UK andcoastal its waters. Most of these resources are no longer economically viable for extraction by traditional methods given the structural decline in our local coal mining industry. A well engineered and regulated UCG industry ...

2012-03-18 · Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) involves utilising the drilling technology normally associated with oil and gas extraction to get access to coal that is not possible to mine with conventional means (tunnels or open cast). Since you cannot pump solid coal up a well bore it needs to be first converted into a liquid or gas. The simplest way of doing this is to set it on fire which will ...
