Thus, methane is regularly found associated with coals, either as adsorbed gas in the seams or as gas pools in overlying formations. Most of the information on coalbed methane presently available is from mining areas in the eastern U.S., where the coal resource is well defined and mining companies are experienced in dealing with the methane hazard. At present, methane is simply vented from mines; it is estimated that 250 MMe\u00a3 of \"coal gas\" gets vented daily in this country. Very little work ~as been done so far towards utilizing the coalbed methane resource, despite the fact that present day technologies could easily be applied to its production. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Methane Recovery from Coalbeds Project (MRCP) was initiated to encourage the use of this resource, specifically through (1) the delineation and evaluation of the coalbed methane resource to the extent that productive and economically attractive target areas might be reliably chosen and (2) the development of improved, more cost-effective methods, systems, and equipment for economically producing and using methane from both mined and unmined coalbeds.", "num_resources": 0, "num_tags": 5, "package_reviewed": true, "private": false, "state": "active",

stratigraphic units and geographical areas wherein the methane production potential is classified as favorable. Sixteen basins were included in this compilation. Each basin is a chapter in this report. The chapter write-ups feature sections on geology, coal resource, potential methane resource and recommendations for development of the technology base needed to estimate recovery potential. Information used in the sections is supported by a list of references. The integration of these data has removed much of the uncertainty about what production potential exists and where the favorable trends are located in the basin. This will aid the producers who are considering well-drilling ventures for coalbed methane recovery. Estimates of production performance from any new wells can only be developed once fundamental reservoir property measurements are acquired.
