Coalbed meth­ane to rise in na­tion

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - BUSINESS -

China ex­pects to in­crease its proved-coalbed meth­ane re­serves by 420 bil­lion cu­bic me­ters dur­ing the 2016-20 pe­riod, the Na­tional En­ergy Ad­min­is­tra­tion said. The coun­try seeks to ex­tract 24 bil­lion cu­bic me­ters of the clean en­ergy and own three in­dus­tri­al­iza­tion bases in 2020, according to a de­vel­op­ment plan re­leased by the NEA late last week. So, coal bed meth­ane will likely ac­count for 13 per­cent of the coun­try’s nat­u­ral gas out­put by 2020.
