Coal Bed Methane (CBM) is a methane gas (CH4) occurring naturally in coal seams.  It is also called as Coal Seam Methane (CSM) or Coal Seam Gas (CSG). Coal Bed Methane is now recognized as a valuable energy resources, rather than just a challenge for underground coal mining.

Indonesia has extensive coal resources, which have been estimated to hold up to 453 trillion cubic feet of Coal Bed Methane. These reserves are mainly located in Kalimantan and Sumatera.

The Indonesian government is considering implementation of special incentives for companies who develop Coal Bed Methane.

In addition to our own facilities and expertise, the company has various affiliations with internationally recognize companies and specialist consultants who can provide additional expertise in analyses, interpretation, and project planning and development.
