Stevens named chairman of CBM Asia Development

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Nov. 22
– CBM Asia Development Corp., Vancouver, BC, which participated in the drilling of Indonesia’s first official coalbed methane well earlier this year, has named Scott H. Stevens as chairman.

Stevens succeeds Clint Sharples, chairman the past 4 years, who has resigned.

Stevens helped to pioneer Indonesia’s rapidly emerging CBM industry. He has worked with numerous multinational oil and gas companies and the government to evaluate the resource and develop current regulations.

He was the first to recognize and rigorously quantify Indonesia’s prospective 450 tcf CBM resources through extensive studies on behalf of PT Caltex Pacific International (Chevron Asia), ExxonMobil, Shell, TOTAL, Asian Development Bank, and Indonesia’s MIGAS (OGJ, Oct. 22, 2001, p. 40).

He has managed CBM exploration and production programs in North America, China, and Poland, including the successful identification of prospects, geologic and reservoir evaluation, and completion of production wells. A report Stevens authored that ranked Indonesia’s top onshore CBM basins served as the basis for Indonesia’s CBM industry, with more than 20 production licenses awarded to date to BP, ExxonMobil, Medco, Dart Energy, and others.
