NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) — EmberClear GTL MS has completed a technical feasibility study for a possible natural gas-to-liquids project on an 800-acre site along the Mississippi River in Natchez.
The Canadian company says in a news release that if the project proceeds the plant could produce 4,000 tons of methanol per day or 14,000 barrels of gasoline per day.
Natchez Inc. Executive Director Chandler Russ tells the Natchez Democrat (http://bit.ly/YmG9qb ) that the company is a long way from making a commitment to the Natchez area.
The company's chief operating officer, Nick Cohen, says the Natchez site is served by American Midstream's Midla pipeline system, which intersects three interstate gas pipelines, providing the company with the option to source gas from virtually anywhere in Texas and Louisiana, as well as parts of Oklahoma.
