ABSTRACT

In KGHM Polska Miedz S.A. the Underground Brown Coal Gasification Project has
been carried out. The data concerning coal deposit, procedure of site selection for
geological research (exploration) together with justification of decisions being made are
described in the paper. The lay-out of bore holes, expected geological cross sections and
laboratory tests necessary for developing the installation for underground gasification
are presented as well. Some law aspects of building the installation and using
synthesized gas for energy purposes in the frames of cogeneration – for power and heat
energy production are discussed. The results presented in the paper were prepared
according to Polish law requirements.
