These projects are likely to encourage the use of longwall mining to extract other thick or steeply pitching coal seams in the area.

Underground Coal Gasification | netl.doe.gov

Underground Coal Gasification (UCG) takes advantage of the same chemical reactions of coal to produce product gases, as those occurring in conventional gasifier reactors. The main difference is that in UCG the underground coal seam itself becomes the reactor, so that the gasification of the coal takes place underground instead of in a manufactured gasification vessel at the surface.1 Obviously ...

Coal - Wikipedia

Coal is a combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock, formed as rock strata called coal seams.Coal is mostly carbon with variable amounts of other elements; chiefly hydrogen, sulfur, oxygen, and nitrogen. Coal is formed if dead plant matter decays into peat and over millions of years the heat and pressure of deep burial converts the peat into coal.

Coal Seam - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Coal seams are fractured porous media, characterized by a large internal surface area. Significant amounts of methane (CH 4) are generated and retained in the coal seam during the geological process, leading to the formation of coal seams, the so-called coalification process (Levine, 1993; Gentzis, 2000). The way this coalbed methane is stored ...
