Report summary

The presence of thick, gassy coals close to energy intensive industry has made the Damodar Valley the most prospective area of India for CBM.  The government awarded five blocks in the first CBM licensing round in 2001.  Since then, progress has been slow.  Bureaucracy, limited drilling services, and land and community issues have all challenged the progress of operations. Any gas produced should find a ready market.
