The 15th International Symposium on CBM/CMM and Shale Gas in China will be held on November 12-13, 2015 in Beijing Landmark Hotel. Organized by China Coal Information Institute, the 2-day Symposium is supported by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and State Administration of Coal Mine Safety.
Why to attend?
In 2014, the total drainage volume of coal mine methane reached 13.26 billion m3 with the low utilization of 4.53 billion m3. The surface coalbed methane in 2014 was about 3.73 billion m3, and the utilization reached 3.16 billion m3. Based on the current status of coalbed methane development and utilization, the development of CBM industry in China should both take reference of the advanced experience from other countries and summarize the successful cases and lessons learned from the CBM development and utilization in recent years, so as to develop key technologies suitable for the CBM development and utilization in China, promote the coordinate development of CBM development and CMM drainage, achieve the targets of gas pre-drainage before coal mine construction, gas pre-drainage before coal mining and co-extraction of coal and gas and guarantee the coal mine safety. Introduce your advanced study and technologies!
Besides, with the rapid growth of coal production and the promotion of coal mine rectifying and closure in China, a large amount of gassy coal mine with exhausted resources and unsafe production conductions were closed, so the recovery and utilization of abandoned coal mine methane (AMM) has great potential and will be one of the important topics of the Symposium.
An unconventional natural gas - shale gas, as a 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 and enhance cooperation within the industry.
