The Stone Horn Ridge LLC (SHR), a joint venture of CIRI and Laurus Energy Inc, is undertaking the coal gasification plant project at Cook Inlet in Southcentral Alaska, the US.

The project involves the construction of a UCG plant which will convert deeply buried, unmineable coal into energy-rich syngas, without mining. It also includes the construction of power plant and enhanced oil recovery system for disposing waste carbon dioxide.

The project also involves drilling wells into buried coal seams, then injecting compressed air into the wells, causing the coal to combust and creates gas.

The project is planned to be implemented in phases. The first phase of the project includes construction of underground coal gasification system and a 100MW combined-cycle power plant, which will feed electricity into the Alaska Railbelt power grid at Beluga.

If this first phase of the project succeeds, there is the future potential to expand the operation, possibly adding a plant for the upgrade of syngas to synthetic natural gas for delivery to gas utilities, and possibly adding a gas-to-liquids facility for the production of synthetic liquid fuels.

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has been appointed as independent science and technology consultant to help ensure safe, clean and responsible project development, operation and closing. Alaska Earth Sciences will provide project management, logistics, and full geologic support to the project.

Planning activities are underway.
