Under the purview of energy, coal bed methane primarily refers to the natural gas or methane
recovery from un-mined coal seams and adjacent sandstones. Such methane recovery usually
occurs prior to mining, whereas in some cases, coal seams remain un-mined and methane
recovery from such sites is known as virgin coal bed methane. Coal bed methane recovery from
un-mined coal mines is of strategic importance as absolute or maximum drainage of the
methane seam is necessary to avoid the risk of explosion as well as mitigate the emission of
methane in the atmosphere from coal mining operations. From the estimated global coal bed
methane reserve of about 4,000 Tcf to 5,000 Tcf, about 20% to 25% is recoverable.

The fact that the coal in some sites is at a greater depth, makes it not feasible to extract it on
account of the associated safety. This and other environmental and economic considerations
serve as the drivers for the global coal bed methane market. Further, the shifting focus towards
the use of unconventional energy sources serves as another factor for the growth of global coal
bed methane market. The constraints of the coal bed methane are dependent on the
accessibility of coal seams. Major constraints of the global coal bed methane market include
environmental, regulatory, technical and economic challenges. Among these, environmental
constraints include risk associated with greenhouse gas emission.
The economical challenges associated with the global coal bed methane market are more
prevalent in the early stages of the recovery, when large...
