Coal Seam Gas/ Coal Bed Methane (CSG/CBM) in Asia - Market Analysis, Investment Scenario, Competitive Landscape and Production Forecasts to 2020

Summary

“Coal Seam Gas/ Coal Bed Methane (CSG/CBM) in Asia - Market Analysis, Investment Scenario, Competitive Landscape and Production Forecasts to 2020”, is the latest report from industry analysis specialists GlobalData, offering comprehensive information on the Asian Coal Seam Gas market, covering Australia, China, India, New Zealand, Indonesia and Vietnam CBM markets. CBM or CSG as it is referred to in Australia, is one of the major unconventional sources of gas. The naturally occurring methane gas has characteristics similar to that of conventional natural gas. CSG is believed to be formed during the conversion of organic matter in to coal, a process believed to have occurred many years ago. It is usually extracted by pumping water into the deep coal bed, thereby extracting the methane adsorbed over the coal deposits.


The report is compiled using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research, and in-house analysis by GlobalData’s team of industry experts.
