Coal Bed Methane Indonesia Conference, 2012

Graham Marshall - Sunday, March 25, 2012

The inaugural Coal Bed Methane Indonesia Conference will occur on the 14th & 15th May 2012 at the Conrad Hotel in Bali.

The theme of the CBM Conference is on optimizing the potential of CBM towards commercialization.

According to the conference organizers, the conference aims to promote the opportunities in Indonesia's Coal Bed Methane industry .

Best of all - in my opinion - is the opportunity it provides to spend a couple of days at the Conrad Hotel in Bali - which just happens to be my favourite place to stay whenever I visit Bali.

The conference will revolve around the following themes:

- Regulatory and Legal Framework Impacting Indonesia's CBM Industry;

- Indonesia and Global Unconventional Gas Developments;

- Meeting Indonesia's Energy Demands with CBM Gas Developments;

- Attracting Investments for Growing Indonesia's CBM Industry;

- Serving the Coal Bed Methane Industry Needs;

- Global Unconventional Gas Market Commercialization Experiences;

- Early Stage CBM Commercialization in Indonesia; and

- Implementing Sustainable and Economic CBM Growth.

It would appear that as the industry begins to move past its infancy stage, Coal Bed Methane Indonesia 2012, will be timely for industry stakeholders and investors looking to benefit from the potential of Indonesia's rich CBM reserves.
