GILLETTE, Wyoming — Linc Energy has told the state that it won't start work on its underground coal gasification pilot project in northeast Wyoming until at least next year.
The company disclosed the new timetable in an annual report filed with the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality.
The company is looking to oxidize underground coal and produce gasses, including hydrocarbons, hydrogen gas and carbon dioxide, that can be used as fuel or in other chemical processes.
The Gillette News Record reports (http://bit.ly/1OPeprb ) that the company says it's still securing permits and no activity is planned on the project near Wright this year.
