Being in close proximity to the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal and Hay Point makes it an ideal location for future export plans. BHP Billiton and Mitsubishi jointly operate Hay Point and route a lot of exports via Dalrymple Bay as well.

Linc Energy is Australia's leader in clean coal technology and has proven the combination of two technologies, Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) and Gas to Liquids (GTL). Together these technologies have the potential to economically convert 'stranded' coal, from deep underground, into ultra-clean liquid fuels.

Shares in Linc Energy were trading at AUD$1.36, 2:55PM AEST today.
