TEST Coal Bed Methane is emerging as an important substitute of conventional hydrocarbon gases. Once produced from the coal system it behaves as a typical natural gas with very small amounts of heavier components. It is different from conventional Hydrocarbon Reservoirs because gas is also adsorbed on the coal surface rather than only in pores of the conventional oil and gas reservoirs. My research includes the recovery mechanism of the gases from coal systems coupling with adsorption model.
