Coal seam gas (CSG) has been established as a viable source of natural gas. The monetization of CSG resources through LNG projects experienced rapid expansion in recent years as a result of increasing LNG prices. However, CSG development and production have recently dropped due to a glut of LNG supplies. LNG production plants fed with CSG require fewer gas processing steps compared with many conventional natural gas sources. The less complex processing demands can improve operations and reduce costs. Here, a critical overview of commercially proven processes available for the treating and liquefaction of CSG in a baseload LNG plant is presented. A discussion is also offered on selection is
