2010 International Coalbed and Shale Gas Symposium/RPSEA Forum

The University of Alabama's College of Continuing Studies, College of Engineering and sponsors are proud to continue the tradition of hosting the International Coalbed Methane Symposium. The first Coalbed Methane Symposium was held on the campus of The University of Alabama in November 1987. Promulgated by national and international energy demand, interest in the coalbed methane gas resources continued to expand. In 1993, the Coalbed Methane Symposium gained international attention and the result was the first International Coalbed Methane Symposium.
The focus of this symposium is on accurate delineation and efficient recovery of both mine-related and stand-alone coalbed methane resources worldwide. While the majority of the papers presented relate to coalbed methane, this meeting provides a wonderful opportunity for interdisciplinary examination of diverse technologies concerning coalbed methane and shale gas.
On Wednesday morning, May 19, RPSEA's Forum and Technical Session will take place at the Symposium beginning at 8 a.m. and will continue after lunch until 2 p.m.  RPSEA Director of Corporate Affairs Steve Beach will kick-off the forum.  Various RPSEA projects will be highlighted, project managers included Jack Pashin, Tom Hayes, Tom Chidsey and Iraj Salehi.  After lunch, an industry panel will discuss “Critical Research Needs for Development of Gas Shale and Coalbed Methane Resources."
