HOUSTON (ICIS)--US-based Synthesis Energy Systems (SES) has agreed to work with an unnamed global technology provider on a coal gasification study, SES said on Friday.

The study could lead to the unnamed company using low-quality coal as an environmentally-friendly feedstock, SES said.

Houston-based SES said the study will target growing economies with indigenous low-quality coal and high natural gas prices.

SES did not reveal the name of the global technology provider that ordered the study, which will be done in eight months.

Fluor Enterprises will also assist in the study, the release said.

SES provides technology, equipment and engineering services for the conversion of low rank, low cost coal and biomass feedstocks into energy and chemical products, according to the company’s release.
