What's it about


The Project involves the capture and use of methane gas at the Tower mine ("Mine") in Carbon County, Utah, an underground longwall coal mine that has been abandoned since September 22, 2008. Methane gas from the abandoned mine, which would otherwise passively vent to the atmosphere over time through cracks and fissures in the strata, is extracted through 10 vertical gob vent borehole ("GVB") wells drilled from the surface of the Mine into subsided underground areas that were created by longwall mining activity when the Mine was active. The methane gas extracted through the GVB wells is collected, compressed, and piped to an on-site processing facility that removes a range of contaminants. After processing, gas is delivered to a natural gas pipeline where it is ultimately combusted by various downstream uses.

By capturing abandoned mine methane ("AMM") that would otherwise vent to the atmosphere, the Project will generate annual emission reductions of approximately 102,800 tCO2e per year over the course of 10 years. The Project will deliver an important source of domestic natural gas to the pipeline grid.
