The Mountain State’s coal, natural gas and manufacturing leaders are fully behind Domestic Synthetic Fuels, a state-of-the-art coal to liquids fuel plant being built near Point Pleasant, West Virginia to manufacture high-grade diesel fuel and gasoline.
Here’s what they have to say:
Domestic Synthetic Fuels will be a very intricate part of how we lead our state into that next step of energy independence and dominance. The key to our success is to find downstream uses in manufacturing and chemical producing companies.
Charlie Burd, executive director, Independent Oil and Gas Association of West Virginia.
For decades, we've been looking at ways to expand our coal usage and development, and how to expand our overall fossil fuel portfolio. Any type of domestic, homegrown synthetic fuel that is directly manufactured from coal accelerates those objectives.
Chris Hamilton, senior vice president, West Virginia Coal Association
We’re sitting on one of the largest natural gas reserves here in West Virginia, one of the largest in the world. It really gives us a unique opportunity to be able to use that resource here in West Virginia and in the United States to create fuels, to create additional products that could be used for manufacturing and other things that we use every day.
Anne Blankenship, executive director, West Virginia Oil and Natural Gas Association
Domestic Synthetic Fuels is unique for West Virginia and the United States as being kind of a one-of-a-kind facility utilizing two of our biggest natural resources here in West Virginia. The two primary ingredients for their manufacturing process, coal and natural gas, are in abundance here.
