ArcelorMittal Temirtau
Date: 2018-07-16
In Kazakhstan, Kanysh Satbayev Kazakh National Technical University and ArcelorMittal Temirtau are reporting a soon to be launched joint venture to explore, produce and process coalbed methane in the Karaganda coal basin.

The project will start with coalbed methane geological prospecting in coal seams on contractual territories with subsequent methane extraction. The project is being supported by the state with tax breaks and other concessions.

Coalbed methane is an important source of energy in countries such as Australia, Canada, China, and the U.S. where World coalbed methane production is currently 58 billion cubic metres per year.

ArcelorMittal Temirtau, part of ArcelorMittal Group, is Kazakhstan's largest mining and metallurgical enterprise with a steel plant in Temirtau, eight coal mines in the Karaganda region and four iron ore mines.

Date: 2016-11-14
In Laramie, Wyoming, energy-focused technical services provider WellDog reports it has inked a Letter of Intent to form a joint venture with China's Shaanxi Provincial Institute of Energy Resources and Chemical Engineering. The JV will deploy reservoir, production and development technologies to demonstrate profitable coal bed methane (CBM) development in fields in Shaanxi province.

China's CBM resource is estimated at nearly 40 trillion cubic meters (tcm), with recoverable reserves of about 10 tcm. Over the last few decades, China has dramatically increased investment in CBM technologies, and each of the country's five-year plans has increased CBM production targets, which have been unsuccessful.
