In 2008 we introduced a successful Workshop day to our Annual Conference, which is now a permanent feature, this enables members to be kept informed of technical advances, legislative or regulatory information pertinent to UCG.
We also present UCG workshops in house for those seeking to train staff and at leading energy events around the world.
Past events include;  a two day event in India with the EU, plus half day Workshops at the SMi Gasifiation Conference, London June 2009, The Global UCG Summit, London 2009 and one day events at the Pittsburgh Coal Conference, September 2008 & 2009.
Workshops can be tailored to give a general overview of the UCG industry or stailored for a specific audience focusing on one aspect of UCG, .
