Coal Bed Methane(CBM) has emerged in the last 20 years as an important domestic source of natural gas.
Coal Bed Methane (CBM) has emerged in the last 20 years as an important domestic source of natural gas, and like any form of energy production, CBM has social, environmental, and economic costs. The Powder River Basin of Wyoming and Montana is currently a hotspot for development. This program presents a scientific, yet entertaining look at coal bed methane development in the Powder River Basin and brings together a variety of stakeholders to explore the process of extracting this energy source and the social and environmental issues involved.
