Title: Gas Production From Coalbeds-Accomplishments And Prospects

Abstract: Bureau of Mines research projects on coalbed degasification have already produced more than one and a quarter billion cubic feet of pipeline quality natural gas. At a time when the nations future needs are projected at tens of trillions of cubic feet annually, this level of production appears trivial. But, if we consider that this gas was recovered as a byproduct of research to develop techniques for removing gas from coalbeds to improve safety in underground coal mines, and not initially to supply pipeline quality gas in commercial quantities, we must re-examine the potential for gas production from coalbeds.
