Coal Bed Methane
Perhaps, most of the people have no idea what coal bed methane means as even the name probably sounds unfamiliar to most of them. However, being a knowledgeable kind of person makes is certain that you would love to learn something more about the methane. After all, you probably know that it is one of the most used gases by the human beings.
But what you would probably be surprised to learn is that methane is one of the main reasons for global warming. Are you wondering why it is like that? It is very simple: methane goes up in the atmosphere and lets the sun rays reach the ground. So far so good (because if it did not, it would be really cold now) but the problem comes when the warmth and the extra temperature to be ‘emitted’ into the space. That becomes impossible because of the large amount of methane in the atmosphere which results in increasing temperatures.
Undoubtedly, that was a pretty interesting fact to learn about the methane. However, what should be an object of interest is the so called coal bed methane. Probably, you have not even heard that methane could be extracted from coals. It sounds pretty interesting, don’t you think? Yes, coals contain a super large amount of methane which could be released by depressurizing the coal bed.
What you’ll certainly find pretty interesting is the term “coal bed”. In fact, it is nothing special: a term which is just used to explain the availability of coals under the surface of the ground. Another interesting term which you will probably come across one day is “coal seal”. It plays a huge role when it comes to drilling wells. Wells are the usual method used for transferring the extracted methane from the ‘under-ground’ to the surface.
In conclusion, you are likely to be interested to learn where some of the most considerable ‘coal beds’ are located. There should be no doubt that the main two countries which extract methane by using this method are Russia and the United States. Maybe, Russia is a little surprising answer, do you think so? Well, you should not be surprised at all because Russia is the largest manufacturer of gas in the world (it meets the demand of a whole continent- Europe). And as far as the US is concerned, Wyoming and Montana are one of the most famous areas offering a super large amount of methane.
It is fairly obvious what the job of a cook will entail, but if you have skills in this area would you consider working on an oil rig to put them to the test? It certainly provides an altogether different environment from where many other cooks work, and yet it is...
