  • New source of ocean methane discovered

    Scientists searching for an explanation for high levels of the potent greenhouse gas methane in the oceans have discovered a new means of production, which could explain the source of previously unaccounted for methane. The discovery has great significance for understanding the ocean's role in global warming. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas that has contributed approximately 20 per cent to the ...

  • The European Commission Joins Methane to Markets

    (Washington, D.C. – September 24, 2007) The Methane to Markets Partnership marked a major milestone this week as the European Commission became its 21st partner.

  • China Natural Gas and Coalbed Methane Industry Report, 2011

    In 2010, the output of natural gas grew steadily in China, and the volume of natural gas and liquefied natural gas (LNG) imported from Central Asia continued to increase, as a result, the resource supply increased substantially. The gas demand kept rapid growth, the consumer market was further expanded, and except for the tight natural gas supply in some ...


  • Reservoirs: a neglected source of methane emissions

    Substantial amounts of the greenhouse gas methane are released not only from large tropical reservoirs but also from run-of-the-river reservoirs in Switzerland, especially in the summer, when water temperatures are higher. This was demonstrated by Eawag scientists at Lake Wohlen, near Bern – a finding which slightly tarnishes the reputation of hydropower as a climate-neutral way of ...

  • US proposes to cut methane from oil, gas by nearly half

    The Obama administration is proposing to cut methane emissions from U.S. oil and gas production by nearly half over the next decade in an unprecedented step to curb climate change. The administration's target is to cut methane from oil and gas drilling by 40 to 45 percent by 2025, compared to 2012 levels. The move was not unexpected - officials set the same goal in a preliminary blueprint in ...

  • Coal Bed Methane Gas Market by Technology, Application to 2011 – 2021

    Coal bed methane (CBM) is an unconventional natural gas found adsorbed in coal seams. It is primarily extracted from bituminous and sub-bituminous coals. The gas is stored in the coal matrix through adsorption. Coal seam methane can be extracted before, during, or after coal mining operations take place; based on which it can be classified as CBM, ...
