The Coalbed Methane (CBM) Market 2013-2023

Coalbed Methane (CBM) has been a notable part of the US natural gas market for decades. Today, Australia, China, India and Indonesia are all poised to embark on CBM development that will establish CBM industries of a similar scale. The less well known unconventional gas, CBM – from a cost and expertise perspective – is more than ready to take advantage of very strong natural gas prices in India and across East and South East Asia.

Today, natural gas markets have regional price dynamics. This is most clearly illustrated by the arbitrage opportunity between North America and East Asia. The drivers for CBM are also localized:

Australia, as the second CBM market established in the world, has a head start on the Chinese, Indian and Indonesian development. Capital expenditure on CBM in Australia is already very high to support the three CBM-LNG export projects under construction on the Queensland coast.

In China, the government is aiming to double the percentage of its primary energy supply that is natural gas. To do this will require action on all possible fronts; and, with difficulties developing shale assets, the Chinese are looking to their very significant CBM reserves to contribute substantially to their domestic gas production. However the State will need to support the industry with a range of subsidies if the output targets set for CBM are to be met. This will require capital expenditure to increase rapidly over the coming 10 years.

India and Indonesia are the last two hot spots for capital expenditure on CBM development. India has conducted four CBM block licensing rounds thus far and will conduct a fifth in 2013. The country began commercial production of CBM in 2007 and the companies involved in the market are consolidating. The geology of Indonesia, as well as its domestic natural gas demand, makes CBM development a very appetizing prospect: 2013 sees the development of more pilot production than ever before and will be a crucial year for the nation’s CBM future.

As natural gas prices have fallen in North America – thanks to the shale gas boom – the amount of CBM wells drilled in the US market has plummeted.

Visiongain has determined that the value of the CBM market in 2013 will reach $5.3bn.
