An Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle IGCC has been proposed for Lianyungang, a coastal city
200 kilometres north of the Subei oil field in China. The Natural Resources Defense Council reports that the proposed has been proposed to "eventually" be a 1200 megawatt plant with Carbon Capture and Storage. It is proposed that the captured carbon dioxide be used to increase the pressure in a declining oil field as a way of increasing the amount of oil recovered. (This is referred in oil industry circles as Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR)).
The NRDC have also reported that the IGCC plant would be built in conjunction with a 1300 megawatt ultra-supercritical coal-fired plant.
