Methane is an organic gas accounting for more than 90% of natural gas. In Polish coal deposits, it occurs in an almost pure form, only mixed with a negligible amount of other gases. Methane resources in beds of the Upper Silesian Coal Basin are estimated at 350 billion cubic metres, which is sufficient for over 22 years of Poland’s demand for gas.

Today in Poland methane is seen mainly as a threat and a burden for the coal mining industry and the environment. Its extraction and use by the domestic energy sector is still at a development stage. Our goal is to make use of this attractive energy resource. Methane has a high calorific value, is easy to transport and can be used in automatically controlled power boilers with high energy efficiency. Universal Energy offers solutions for all stages of methane project development from design, through extraction, to production of electricity and heat.

Within the EU, Universal Energy works on commercial extraction of methane from:

  • active coal mines in the process of methane drainage ensuring safety and continuity of mining operations
  • virgin coal deposits allowing for safe extraction of coal in the future
  • galleries and pit shafts of abandoned mines

Our experts have many years of experience in methane drainage of mines gained both in Poland and internationally. We create modern technology solutions working with leading national and international companies and research institutes.
