SLURRY PIPELINES--ENERGY MOVERS OF THE FUTURE
There are now 381 miles of coal-slurry pipelines, carrying more than 6 million tons/yr of coal, in the U.S., and a 1000 mile, 38 in. dia line currently being planned will carry 25 million tons/yr. The Consolidation Coal Co. and Southern Pacific Transportation Co. have reported that no attrition of particles has occurred during the operation of their slurry lines. Slurry lines can transport energy at a cost of $0.024/million Btu/100 mi, compared with $0.02/million Btu/100 mi for gas, $0.015 million Btu 100 mi for coal extract, and $0.008/million Btu 100 mi for oil. The economics of coal transportation by pipeline vs. coal gasification are compared.
