2021-11-2  Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) takes advantage of the same chemical reactions of coal to produce product gases, as those occurring in conventional gasifier reactors. The main difference is that in UCG the underground coal seam itself becomes the reactor, so that the gasification of the coal takes place underground instead of in a manufactured gasification

UCG-GTL - Underground Coal Gasification - Gas To Liquids

Underground Coal Gasification - Gas To Liquids (UCG-GTL) UCG-GTL is the "revolutionary" successful combination of two known processes, Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) and the conversion of the resultant Gas (Syngas) To Liquids (GTL).. UCG and GTL as separate processes have been extensively trialed and have been in commercial use in many countries for more than 50 years.

A Study of Underground Coal Gasification (UCG)

2021-9-7  ABSTRACT: Underground coal gasification (UCG) is a non-conventional method of extracting gas from coal. The primary advantage of UCG is that it recovers gas from uneconomical or unminable coal, potentially increasing the value of the world’s coal reserves by an estimated 70%; for this reason, UCG has been implemented at sites around the world.
