IMPORTING FUELS AND PETROCHEMICAL RAW MATERIALS FOR TEXAS
The report evaluates energy requirements for Texas from 1975 to 2000 and analyzes the required transportation network. Major emphasis centers around the feasibility of importing western coal by rail. Of secondary importance are both the utilization of coal as a primary fuel and importing it by pipeline as either a slurry or high-Btu synthetic gas.
