Lake Charles Methanol
Lake Charles Methanol is a proposed gasification facility in Louisiana, planning to capture over 4 Mtpa of CO2 from synthetic gas (syngas). The syngas (to be further converted to make methanol and other products) would be produced during the conversion of petroleum coke sourced from oil refineries in the Gulf Coast region. The captured CO2 would most likely be used in Denbury Resources enhanced oil recovery assets in the Houston area, Texas. The Institute estimates an operations date of 2021.
