ABSTRACT Major problems facing the development of coal and gas resources of the Hartshorne Coalbeds include the complex distribution of minable and un- minable coal, high methane content and bed pressure, faulting, varia- tions in degree of dip, presence of natural gas fields in associated sandstones, and legal problems, caused by local geologic characteris- tics, in identifying gas origin.
