Summary:
Coalbed methane well development. Requires that applications for coalbed methane well permits include a survey showing whether any subsidence or other damage to the surface is likely to occur and, if necessary, a subsidence control plan. Permit applicants must provide notice to surface owners six months before drilling and permittees must take certain actions to prevent surface damage and compensate surface owners or correct the damage if damage occurs. All of the requirements in the bill are based on those currently imposed on coal surface mining operators by regulation.
