3.3.5. Subsequent Research Related to Methane Recovery from Coalbeds
With the winding down of DOE-funded CBM research, GRIís research program in
coalbed methane grew dramatically.
GRI CBM R&D continued during the shift from a resource-based program to a technology-based program in the mid-1990s. Significant new efforts related to CBM R&D ended in the late 1990s. A complete listing of GRI reports on CBM topics is provided within the spreadsheet bibliography accompanying this report.
By the end of the decade, CBM production was more than six times the volume produced in 1990, and industry was effectively utilizing much of the information and technology that had been initiated and developed by DOE and GRI.
