3.3.1. Key Questions Related to Coal Seam Methane
In the late 1970s, very little quantitative information was available related to the gas
content of the Nationís coal seams, beyond those being actively mined. The information
that was available was not public or easily accessed.
Earlier Bureau of Mines work had indicated that economic gas recovery/utilization might be possible via direct pipeline injection, conversion to LNG, use for on-site power generation, or petrochemical production. In some cases, it was felt that off-the-shelf technology could be modified for these applications (i.e., gas turbines, LNG production units, and ammonia production units).
