Coalbed 33 CBM blocks [including 2 blocks on Nomination

Coalbed
methane is an unconventional natural gas and a very good source of energy. It
is extracted from the coal beds or coal seams. The formation take place during
the process of coalification and the transformation of plant into the coal.
Eventually it is one of the most important energy resource with reserves and
production. CBM stable source of energy because we can get it by various method.
It can be recovered from underground coal before, during and after mining
operations. For extraction and development of CBM horizontal and vertical wells
are used, which require drilling into the coal seam or coal beds and the water present
in the seam is removed to reduce hydrostatics pressure and released adsorbed
gas out of the coal.

CBM
can fulfil the national goals in India:

Provide
a clean burning fuel. Improve safety of coal mining. Decrease methane vented to
the atmosphere that might cause global warming. 
Most importantly provides a means to use an abundant coal resource that
is too deep to mine. It minimizes the environmental impacts due to coal mining
as methane is not lost to the environment anymore. It is used for other
purposes like steel manufacturing, fuel for industries, fertilizer manufacture,
ceramics glass textiles etc.

 

Indian scenario of CBM

India has the 3rd largest proven coal reserves and coal
producer in the world and thus holds significant prospects for exploration and
exploitation of CBM. CBM blocks were carved out by DGH in close
interaction with Ministry of Coal (MOC) &Central Mine Planning and Design
Institute (CMPDI), Ranchi. Under the CBM
policy, till date, four rounds of CBM
bidding rounds have been implemented by MOP&NG, resulting in award of 33 CBM blocks including 2 blocks on Nomination and 1
block through Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB). The Gondwana sediments
of eastern India host the bulk of India’s coal reserves. The vast majority of
the best prospective areas for CBM
development are in eastern India, situated in Damodar Koel valley and Son
valley. CBM projects exist in
Raniganj South, Raniganj East and Raniganj North areas in the Raniganj
coalfield, the Parbatpur block in Jharia coalfield and the East and west Bokaro
coalfields. Son valley includes the Sonhat North and Sohagpur East and West
blocks. Natural
gas from coal bed methane is likely to contribute to five per cent of national
gas production by 2017, Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas, Dharmendra Pradhan, said
in a tweet. He wrote this after a meeting with CBM
producers in India who, he said, had invested Rs. 10,000
crore collectively in CBM blocks. Coal
bed methane refers to a reserve of natural gas stored in coal seams. With India
having the 3rd largest proven reserves of coal globally, according
to the Directorate General of Hydrocarbons, the country holds significant
prospects for exploration and production of CBM,
which is also seen as a clean energy source. Currently, Great Eastern Energy
Corporation limited and Essar Oil and Reliance industries limited are the only
three CBM-gas producing blocks in
the country, from separate reserves in Raniganj, West Bengal and Sohagpur west
and East from its two blocks in Madhya Pradesh.Coalbed
