    Abstract

    Coal seam gas (CSG) consists primarily of methane and carbon dioxide, generated via thermogenic and/or biogenic processes. This study aims to identify and understand geochemical and microbial community changes that occur during the biogenic conversion of coal to methane. In order to gain a better understanding of which microbes are responsible for degrading which compounds in situ, various microcosms were set up, incubated and analysed. Samples were sourced from active eastern Australian CSG producing formations.
