In June 1999, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and Texas A&M University drilled two coal bed methane test holes in Panola County, Texas. The following diagrams provide some preliminary results from drilling and samples collected. The first hole (USGS-PA-1) contained no measurable gas. The second hole (USGS-PA-2), contained coal gas, and is the focus of this presentation.
