COAL AND GAS PIPELINE FEASIBILITY STUDY. FIRST MONTHLY REPORT, 6 SEPTEMBER 1977--30 SEPTEMBER 1977

The objective of this study is to determine the technical and economic feasibility of using a coal and gas pipeline system to bring northern Appalachian coals of medium and high sulfur content to the United States east coast utility markets. Coals, whose sulfur and mineral matter content rendered them unacceptable for current or projected steam coal markets, are to be beneficiated to yield a low sulfur, low ash fraction. The lower grade product is to be gasified to produce a fuel gas of intermediate heating value. The fuel gas is cleaned and subsequently used to transport the clean coal pneumatically to east coast markets, such as, the Philadelphia, PA area. (ERA citation 03:030037)
