Coal Bed Methane in India: Difficulties and Prospects

Keka Ojha, B. Karmakar, A. Mandal, and A. K. Pathak

Abstract—To meet the rapidly increasing demand for energy and faster depletion of conventional energy resources, India with other countries is madly searching for alternate resources like coal bed methane (CBM), shale gas, gas hydrate. CBM is considered to be the most viable resource of these. The present paper discussed about the prospect of CBM as a clean energy source, difficulty involved in production of CBM, enhanced recovery techniques. In this regards, one Indian coal field is selected and gas content is determined by analyzing the collected samples.

Index Terms—CBM, CO2 Sequestration, Global Warming, Methane Recovery, Gas Content, Clean Energy, Singareni Coal Field.
