U.S. COALBED METHANE OUTPUT, RESERVES GROW

Coalbed methane's growing contribution to U.S. gas production and reserves has substantial scope for even further expansion, says a report by Gas Research Institute, Chicago. One estimate indicates that with current technology coalbed gas production from the three most productive basins may reach 2.5 bcfd by 1995 and stabilize thereafter. With refinement of production technology and expansion into currently nonproducing areas, production could rise to more than 3.5 bcfd in 2000, predicts
