Interest in biogenic natural gas production has grown substantially in recent years with the recognition that the operational life of depleted hydrocarbon reserves may be extended using technologies that enhance the activity of indigenous microbial communities. These technologies could also be applied to depleted coal seams located throughout the Powder River Basin with the added economic benefit of existing coal bed methane related infrastructure. The responsible development of this technology requires the proper management of a wide range of complex scientific, environmental, economic and social issues.
