Gasification Process

Gasification process flowchart

Step-by-step

Gasifying coal involves dismantling its molecular structure (by combustion) and reassembling the resulting hydrogen and carbon as methane gas (methanation), which is then sent to a pipeline. The heart of the Synfuels Plant is its 14 gasifiers. These gasifiers are cylindrical pressure vessels, 40 feet high with an inside diameter of 13 feet.

  • Each day 18,000 tons of lignite are fed into the top of the gasifiers.
  • Steam and oxygen are injected into the bottom of the coal beds causing intense combustion: 2,200 degrees F.
  • The hot gases break down the molecular bonds of coal and steam, releasing compounds of carbon, hydrogen, sulfur, nitrogen and other substances to form a raw gas that exits the gasifiers.
  • The raw gas is cooled.
  • Tar, oils, phenols, ammonia and water coproducts are condensed from the gas stream and purified and sent on.
    The gas moves to a cleaning area where further impurities are removed.
  • Methanation occurs when the cleaned gas passes over a nickel catalyst causing carbon monoxide and the remaining carbon dioxide to react with free hydrogen to form methane.
  • Carbon dioxide is removed.
  • The gas is then cooled, dried, and compressed, and enters the pipeline with a heating value of 975 Btu per cubic foot.

Transcanada Talks About Keystone XL Pipeline with Bakken Energy Service CEO Tim Fisher

Transcanada www.transcanada.com spokes person talks about Keystone XL Pipeline with Bakken Energy Service www.bakkenenergyservice.com CEO Tim Fisher Co-Host of the radio talk show Energy Matters on KFYR AM 550 www.kfyr.com in Bismarck North Dakota.

The first topic was informing the listening audience Transcanada already has a pipeline that crosses from the oil sands in Saskatchewan Canada all the way to the oil  refinery in Cushing, Oklahoma. This pipeline has been in use for many years without incident. The Keystone XL Pipeline is a new pipeline proposed to bring oil from the oil sands in Canada all the way to the Gulf of Mexico which will allow the oil sands product to replace the oil currently imported from Venezuela.

The Transcanada Keystone XL Pipeline will bring thousands of high paying jobs to the USA, replace dirty Venezuelan oil, and will keep billions of our US Dollars at home while helping our largest trading partner Canada.

Venezuela oil currently imported to the United States carry more carbon   that of the Canadian Oil Sands virtually reducing green house emissions . When Venezuelan oil in imported to the  United States it has a negative effect on North American countries as nearly 80 % off the oil revenue stays in OPEC country Venezuela and billions of United States currency is sent to a country that is no friend to the United States. Dictator Hugo Chavez has disdain for the United States whereas Canada, our largest trading partner, stands side by side with the United States.

Also Dictator Chavez has 4th stage cancer and is fighting for his life. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-202_162-57571865/hugo-chavez-fighting-for-his-life-venezuelas-vice-president-says-again/ If he passes there is a real likelihood there will be severe unrest and a potential government overthrow which may end imports to the USA all together.

If the Keystone XL pipeline is approved it will also keep millions of barrels of oil from being shipped to China, India and Pakistan. Canadian oil is a national security advantage for both the United States and Canada.

Jobs, President Obama talks about the creation of high paying jobs and the Keystone XL Pipeline will bring exactly that. A big hurdle- A draft State Department report concludes that  building the Keystone XL  pipeline would not speed up development of  Canada’s oil sands, dealing a blow  to environmentalists who claim  Keystone would worsen climate change.The report from the State Department says the Canada-to-Texas pipeline  would  have little impact on the environment.

“Approval or denial of the proposed project is unlikely to  have a  substantial impact on the rate of development in the oil sands,  or on the  amount of heavy crude oil refined in the Gulf Coast area,” the report says.
