US Coalbed Methane Maps (EIA)


AAPG Datapages and the AAPG GIS Publications Committee wish to thank the U.S. Energy Information Association for allowing the US Coalbed Methane Maps (Vector Format) to be posted on Datapages' GIS Open Files page, thereby making it available to the public as a free download.

The EIA coalbed methane GIS project is a summary of CBM fields in the USA completed in 2007 (data from 2006). Three layers are in the project:

  • CBM field outlines with attributes of age, formation and coal names; created by buffering CBM producing wells
  • Coal basin polygons from USGS were attributed to include CBM cumulative production, reserves and resources
  • 100 gassiest coal mines (EPA data)
