The performances of three bituminous coal demonstration methane recovery boreholes located in Greene County, Pennsylvania, are reviewed. Reference is also made to an anthracite coal methane project in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. In addition, an exploratory drilling in the southern anthracite, which provided the project group with coal cores for methane gas analysis, is also cited. The technical and economical data that were gathered from the various methane projects are analyzed. Finally, the advantages and disadvantages of methane recovery by vertical boreholes are assessed.
