Unconventional MEthane Production from Deep European Coal Seams through combined Coal Bed Methane (CBM) and Underground Coal GAsification (UCG) technologies

Aims of MEGA+ project

MEGA+ aims at evaluation of the use of deep lying methane rich coal deposits for coalbed methane and enhanced coalbed methane recovery using horizontal wells, coupled with subsequent high pressure SNG-oriented UCG through the reuse of the same horizontal wells and permanent storage of CO2.

Beyond state-of-the-art, high-pressure gasification tests, advanced numerical simulations and techno-economic assessments will be developed and employed to investigate site-specific CBM-UCG implementations. Project findings will be compiled in best practices serving as guideline for deep CBM-UCG operations in Europe and world-wide.
