Carbon Energy (CNX), formerly known as Metex, is an emerging Australian gas producer. CNX is developing the processes and infrastructure to produce syngas by means of underground coal gasification (UCG) using technology developed by the CSIRO. The company has successfully built a pilot production facility near Dalby in the Surat Basin (QLD) which has produced commercially attractive syngas. Recent milestones include: Carbon has a joint venture with Incitec to identify and develop opportunities in Australia and internationally to make ammonia using the UCG process. Carbon has also signed a commercial off-take agreement with Queensland government-owned electricity provider Ergon Energy, placing CNX amongst the first to commercialise the UCG process. The contract, worth about $2 million a year, is for electricity produced at Carbon's 5MW syngas-powered electricity production facility being constructed at Bloodwood Creek in the Surat Basin. Major shareholders to date are the CSIRO, with 15 per cent and Incitec with about 10.5 per cent.

Linc Energy (ASX: LNC) is an innovative energy
company deploying Coal to Liquid (CTL) technology from two combined
processes: Underground Coal Gasification (UCG); and Gas to Liquids
(GTL). The technology enables the firm to convert stranded coal
reserves into ultra clean diesel fuel. The company may also use the
synthetic gas (syngas) developed by UCG process as feedstock for gas
turbines to generate environmentally friendly electricity. LNC is
currently constructing a model facility at Chincilla (Queensland) with
an output capacity of 10 barrels per day (bpd) and also plans to
develop a 20,000 bpd South Australian facility in the next three years. The qualitative
analysis highlights the company's leading position within the UCG
industry in many areas including technology enhancement, ownership of
vast supplies of coal, a strong management team and the ability to
capture substantial commercial opportunities. Linc has in addition substantial oil and coal assets in several countries.
