The Mingo County Redevelopment Authority has partnered with TransGas Development Systems, LLC, a New York based energy company, to develop an approximately $4 billion coal-to-gasoline plant on a 150 acre post mined site near Gilbert, West Virginia.  The plant site is directly adjacent to the Mike Whitt Memorial Highway, aka, the King Coal Highway.

This plant, to be called Adams Fork Energy, will produce nearly 1 billion gallons per year of ultra-clean, premium synthetic gasoline and liquid fuels from 7,500 tons per day of coal, utilizing commercially proven technologies from world class firms.

Construction is expected to last four years and will create approximately 5,000 construction jobs.  Once operational, Adams Fork will employ 300 people on a daily basis and provide opportunities for a variety of manufacturing and support businesses.

Mingo County Redevelopment Authority’s vision in supporting Adams Fork Energy is that it will begin the transition of the region from one of resource extraction toward one of resource based manufacturing.  The plant will be the first of its kind in the entire US…..right here in Mingo County!

Just as significant as this project’s economic impact to Mingo County and the state of West Virginia, is its potential to jump start the meeting of our nation’s energy needs with domestic fuel sources, and to subsequently increase America’s energy independence.
