Kent was contracted to perform the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) for a 17,500 bbl/day coal-to-gasoline facility and provide overall project management services for project development up to financial close for the Raven Energy Bond County Illinois Project; provide design services to support a Class II capital cost estimate; establish a site development plan including socio-economic impact assessment and construction planning for this remote site.
