Australia's Linc Energy said today all the major components for its Chinchilla gas to liquids (GTL) demonstration plant in Queensland have now been engineered and fabricated.
The bulk of the work was carried out in South Africa and the components will be sent to Australia before the end of December, Linc said.
The company said it now hopes to complete the Chinchilla plant by the middle of February.
Once built, the plant, to be built outside the Darling Downs town of Chinchilla, in Queensland, will be the world's first GTL facility operating on underground coal gasification.
