The commercialization of Canadian coalbed methane is critical to the future of North American natural gas supply. At a time when conventional sources of gas from the WCSB are tapering off and Arctic gas is experiencing its own unique challenges in getting to market, coalbed methane appears to be the light at the end of the tunnel. But the Canadian CBM industry has a way to go before achieving the level of production and project economics necessary to meet the shortfall in supply.

The Canadian Institute has developed this 3rd annual Coalbed Methane Symposium to provide you with the latest information on Canadian CBM production and projects, the industry's evolving regulatory environment, and the technical advancements propelling the industry forward, so that you can plan your next move.

Hear from key industry players and experts on the critical issues impacting the industry, including:
*The main challenges to commercializing CBM production in Canada and how they are being overcome
*An update on drilling and completions techniques developed to maximize CBM production
*Improving the commercial viability of Canadian CBM projects through joint ventures: a case study analysis
*Infrastructure requirements: are pipeline networks positioned to capitalize on the growth of Canadian CBM?
*An update on the recent changes to regulations in Alberta and B.C. affecting CBM development
*The geological characteristics of coalbeds in Western Canada and potential for new gas volumes
