What is Coal Bed Methane???
Coal Bed Methane (CBM) is naturally occurring methane (CH4)with small amounts of other hydrocarbon and non hydrocarbongases contained in coal seams as a result of chemical and physicalprocesses.
CBM is an environment-friendly clean fuel with properties similarto natural gas. It is often produced at shallow depths and in mostcases with large volumes of water of variable quality.
Coal Bed Methane
It is called
'sweet gas'because of its lack of hydrogen sulphide
.The presence of this gas is well known from its occurrence inunderground coal mining, where it presents a serious safetyrisk.
Coal bed methane, often referred to as
, is distinct from atypical sandstone or other conventional gas reservoir, as themethane is stored within the coal by a process calledadsorption. The methane is in a near-liquid state, lining theinside of pores within the coal (called the matrix). The openfractures in the coal (called the cleats) can also contain freegas or can be saturated with water.
