Coal beds are a source of unconventional gas. Coal bed methane (CBM) is naturally created during the geologic process of converting plant material to coal (coalification). To extract the methane, CBM operators drill wells into coal seams and pump out ground water (produced water or CBM wastewater).
Extracting methane gas from coal beds is dangerous work and requires precision to avoid polluting the surrounding environment.
Geotech has developed equipment for CBM operators that makes methane extraction safer, less polluting, and more efficient for greater yields.
