This 352-page PDF document, compiled by the Colorado University School of Law, is a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of coalbed methane. This primer seeks to contribute to public policy making for CBM development by providing an accessible reference tool. The document is composed of four sections: 1) defining CBM, where it is found, and how it is developed; 2) the problems, conflicts and challenges associated with CBM development, including environmental concerns; 3) regulation of CBM development; and 4) suggestions to minimize environmental and other impacts of CBM extraction.
