Standard for baseline water-well testing for coalbed methane/natural gas in coal operations

Description

Coalbed methane, also known as natural gas in coal, is in the early stages of development in Alberta and has significant growth potential. With this potential for development, it is necessary to obtain consistent baseline data on groundwater to ensure the protection of groundwater resources and the environment. This standard makes baseline testing a mandatory regulatory requirement.
