Index / Coalbed Methane / Related Environmental Issues

The Coalbed Methane Outreach Program (CMOP) is a voluntary program whose goal is to reduce methane emissions from coal mining activities. Our mission is to promote the profitable recovery and use of coal mine methane (CMM), a greenhouse gas more than 20 times as potent as carbon dioxide. By working cooperatively with coal companies and related industries, CMOP helps to address barriers to using CMM instead of emitting it to the atmosphere. In turn, these actions mitigate climate change, improve mine safety and productivity, and generate revenues and cost savings.... More →

Index / Coalbed Methane / Related Environmental Issues

The Sydney Basin contains the largest concentration of industrial stationary CO2 emission sources in Australia. However, no actual sites for CO2 geological storage have been identified to date. The Sydney Basin comprises an up to 6,000 m thick succession of mainly Permo-Triassic clastic sediments with large coal resources and an emerging coalbed methane industry. Coal seams are an attractive target for CO2 sequestration in the Sydney Basin due to their proximity to power plants and their potential for enhanced coalbed methane production (ECBM). However, the impact on existing coal resources an... More →

In a study just released by Eric Kort of the University of Michigan, he reports that the Four Corners area is the major U.S. hot spot for methane emissions in this map showing how much emissions varied from average background concentrations from 2003-2009. One small hot spot in the U.S. Southwest is responsible for producing the largest concentration of the greenhouse gas methane ever observed over the United States, more than triple the standard ground-based estimate - according to a new study of satellite data by scientists at NASA and the University of Michigan. Methane is very efficient a... More →

Index / Coalbed Methane / Related Environmental Issues

Our preliminary results suggest that stable isotope ratio compositions of water coproduced with coalbed natural gas may provide a relatively simple and inexpensive way to determine whether coal seams are confined and identify those coals associated with abundant microbial production of natural gas. This information is useful in minimizing water production, increasing gas production efficiency and lowering environmental footprints in CBNG plays.
