{{#badges: CoalSwarm}} Synthesis Energy Systems Inc. and North American Coal Corporation announced in 2008 that they had entered a joint development agreement to evaluate a gas-to-liquids project near Red Hills Mine in Mississippi. If built, the facility could produce synthetic gasoline, chemical feedstocks or synthetic natural gas. The companies planned to conduct a “pre-feasibility study” to determine if “they will engage in a front-end engineering design study to further develop the opportunity.”[1]

In 2010, the Sierra Club reported that the pre-feasibility study had not been released and that the Mississippi DEQ had not received an air permit application. Sierra concluded that the project was defunct.[2]
