Abstract
Work by the Bureau of Mines has demonstrated that coalbeds can yield substantial quantities of pipeline quality natural gas. The estimated volume of gas contained in U.S. coals--some 300 trillion cubic feet--is equivalent to the proved and currently recoverable reserves of natural gas in the United States. The necessary technology to drain and recover much of this gas is already available.
