Oz Leigh Creek Project Sees First Syngas
Australian Leigh Creek has produced first syngas from its Leigh Creek Energy Project in South Australia, the company said October 11.
“This significant Company milestone unlocks a large energy resource and enables the Company to quickly move toward having this resource upgraded to reserve status by the end of 4Q 2018,” Leigh Creek managing director Phil Staveley said.
“We look forward to updating the market as we move closer to certification,” he added.
The production occurred on October 10, the company said.
The project is planned to produce electricity, synthetic natural gas and ammonium nitrate products from the remnant coal resources at Leigh Creek, utilising in situ gasification technologies.
Part of the project includes pipeline gas which LCK has signed a non-binding heads of agreement with APT Pipelines, a subsidiary of APA Group, which will allow the development of conceptual plans for the interconnections of a new pipeline with the east coast gas markets.
