Abstract:

This chapter discusses the concept of enhanced coalbed methane (ECBM) recovery, a technology where carbon dioxide (CO2) storage in unmineable coal seams is accomplished with concomitant enhancement of coalbed methane production. The chapter first reviews the state-of-the-art on the fundamental research aimed at understanding the mechanisms acting during the process. It then describes the practical aspects of the technology and summarizes the results of ECBM field tests. These ...
