Coalbed Methane (CBM) Development
Coal bearing formations have been scientifically proven as the major source of methane accumulation on earth. Methane, has become a valuable resource to be independently produced from coal mines and formations.
Two main methods of CBM recovery exist which are through coal mines and from drilling CBM wells. Drilling wells have ensured commercial quantities of methane gas are produced independently and not as a by-product from coal. The various techniques and technologies used for drilling conventional wells are easily applicable in CBM wells.
Zimbabwe is better known for coal mining than for producing CBM gas. However, these recent studies and well tests have the potential to transform the country into a major global producer of methane gas.
