    Underground coal gasification (UCG) is an industrial process which converts coal into product gas. UCG is an in-situ gasification process, carried out in non-mined coal seams using injection of oxidants and steam. The product gas is brought to the surface through production wells drilled from the ock: coal. Underground Coal Gasification and Combustion provides an overview of underground coal gasification technology, its current status and future directions. Comprehensive in approach, the book covers history, science, technology, hydrogeology, rock mechanics, environmental performance, economics, regulatory and commercial aspects of UCG projects.

    The Dakota Gasification Company's (DGC) Great Plains Synfuels Plant (GPSP) located near Beulah, North Dakota, is the only coal-to-synthetic natural gas (SNG) gasification plant in operation worldwide, producing approximately MM scf/day of SNG [56 billion scf/year] from 6 million tons/year of lignite. In addition to SNG, a variety of byproduct process trains have been . Analysis of Pipe Failure at the Great Plains Coal Gasification Plant J. R. Keiser,* O. C. Dias, t and J. R.
