CBM (Coalbed Methane) receives great attention in recent years and was ever named as "a new star for new energy industry" in China. By end of China's 12th 5-year-plan period, over 35% of total 14+ bcm drained gas got utilized in areas like CBM power stations and resident gas markets. Two CBM production bases in Qinshui basin and East Ordos basin contributed another 4.4 bcm CBM via well-drilling. However, the production capability did not meet the ambitious previous targets (30 bcm annual output by 2015). China's 13th 5-year plan has adjusted the target to a more practical figure: 10 bcm output by well drilling and 7 bcm utilized drained gas by 2020.
