An assessment of coalbed methane exploration projects in Canada / F.M. Dawson ... [et al.]. : M42-549E-PDF

"This study is a critical assessment of the coalbed methane exploration opportunities in the major coal-bearing basins in Canada. Using data from wellbores containing coal, together with experience obtained from studies in other basis, this study provides 1) a defined set of key geological criteria necessary for successful coalbed methane generation, retention and production; 2) a critical review of the possible geological and operational reasons for the outcome of various exploration area projects; 3) recommendations for the areas that offer the greatest potential for economic coalbed methane accumulations."--Abstract
