The 14thnternational Symposium on CBM/CMM and Shale Gas in China will be held in the Beijing on December 16-17, 2014. The 2-day Symposium is co-sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and State Administration of Coal Mine Safety, China, and organized by China Coal Information Institute.
On Sept 22nd, 2013, the General Office of the State Council, China issued the Opinions on Further Accelerating CBM/CMM Extraction and Exploitation, requesting to raise the subsidies rate for CBM/CMM, to intensify tax support, to update policies on the pricing and on-grid power generation of CMM, and to straighten up the overlapping coal and gas rights. In 2013, the total drainage volume of CBM/CMM in China reached 12.6 billion m3, but the gas drainage for quite a lot of outburst gassy coal mines has not yet started as stipulated.
Breakthroughs have already been made in China's CBM E&D in terms of high-rank CBM. An industrial base combining exploration, development, production, transmission, sales and utilization of CBM is also taking shape in the south part of the Qinshui Basin. In 2013, CBM production in China reached 2.98 billion m3. Accompanying production increases, however, are challenges, including unsettled overlapping conflict of coal and gas, underspeed of pipeline construction for increases in CBM well quantity and proven reserves, far outdated exploration and mining technology, especially surface drilling technology, relative to overseas counterparts, high-cost-low-efficiency phenomenon for CBM development, and the lack of drives for downstream utilization. These challenges play a restraining role in China’s effort toward CBM industrialization.
The 14thnternational Symposium on CBM/CMM and Shale Gas in China, as an international communication platform in CBM sector in China, expects to push forward the development of CBM industry. An unconventional natural gas - shale gas, as a new topic of interest, is also included in this Symposium, where industry researchers, government advisers and technical supporters will be invited to discuss policies relating to the shale gas industry, current development of the industry, E&D technology and commercialization strategies. This Symposium aims to build up a bridge for sharing shale gas development expertise and experiences, learn lessons and enhance cooperation within the industry.
