Center for Biogenic Natural Gas Research

The Center for Biogenic Natural Gas Research (CBNG) exists to develop and commercialize technologies that enhance the production of renewable, clean-burning natural gas in coal seams and other fossil fuel reservoirs using indigenous microorganisms. The Center's primary objective is to add value to Wyoming's vast energy resources by keeping them viable in the energy economy of the future.

Researchers at the CBNG are currently involved in the development of several new and innovative technologies designed to bring economically depleted hydrocarbon reserves back into production and extend their economic life.
