Report of Visit to Panhandle Eastern, Houston, Texas.
Enviro Control, Inc., Rockville, Maryland 1976 Oct:2 pages
A visit was made by Enviro Control, Inc. to the Panhandle Eastern facility located in Houston, Texas to discuss coal gasification operations. Panhandle Eastern has long been a proponent of gasifying coal to produce a high BTU pipeline quality synthetic natural gas. Panhandle was concerned about the potential occupational health problem in both the demonstration facilities and in the commercial operation. Their representatives visited with the management at Sasolburg in Europe as they felt that Sasol's approach to occupational safety and health was a good one. Their representative also attended a Coal Gasification Symposium in Russia in the hope of finding information there on the topics of worker safety and health. At the Russian seminar it was not possible to obtain any information on this topic due to language barriers and unsatisfactory interpretation. Panhandle was planning to file an application with FPC.
