BLM IENR CBM Clearinghouse

BLM IENR CBM Clearinghouse


Project Dates: 1 July 2002 - 31 December 2004

Funding Sponsor: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management

Principal Investigator: Jeff Hamerlinck

Co-Principal Investigator: Jim Oakleaf

Project Summary:

The project scope consists of the creation of a centralized Internet-based clearinghouse for textual, tabular, photographic, and spatially-referenced information pertaining to coalbed methane resource development and related management issues in Wyoming. The ultimate goal of the project will be to create and maintain a single, up-to-date, and easy-to-use entry point for accessing data and information on all aspects of CBM-related issues in Wyoming. Target audiences will include resource management agencies, industry, non-governmental organizations, and the general public. The development of an information infrastructure of this kind has the potential for quickly becoming very large in scope and difficult to manage and maintain. The proposed scope of the Wyoming CBM Clearinghouse will initially focus on Wyoming's Powder River Basin, which will result in a scalable Web-based product suitable for expanding coverage and an accompanying implementation plan for achieving that goal in the future.
