Item Number: OFS09-02

This report outlines basic criteria for underground coal gasification (UCG) in Indiana and provides maps showing the distribution of most important parameters. Analyses of the generated maps and additional information identified nine promising zones for UCG in Indiana (four for the Springfield and five for the Seelyville Coal). For these zones, lists of characteristics including the amounts of available coal are provided. Based on these data, preliminary recommendations were made on the future selection of suitable locations for UCG operations.
