Foremost, coal is a black or brownish-black sedimentary rock composed primarily of carbon and hydrogen along with small quantities of other elements such as sulphur. The coal used for analysis is collected from Labuan area. Coalbed methane (CBM) is one of the alternatives to extract the natural gas from the coal solid matrix. The petroleum consumed per annum is rapidly increasing now but the global production of petroleum is reducing. If this continues, all petroleum will be exhausted soon. Therefore, alternative energy sources must be found to replace the impending worldwide petroleum exhaustion. Basically, the project is based on core analysis sample which is from the field in Labuan Area. The outcomes of the analysis will be an indicator for the advanced exploration and development of the coal bed methane reservoir in the future. The coal distribution in Malaysia (Labuan Area) is basically in shallow depth. This coal resource within Labuan region is around the Lubuk Temiang Formation. There are several techniques that involve in the coal core sample analysis. Most common technique is a laboratory test. After the laboratory experiments carry out, the relation between physical and chemical properties of coal with gas content in coal is analyze and discuss. Research must be conducted in order to understand the title and procedures of conducting the experiments testing for different characteristic or properties of coal. The methodology of the laboratory experiments will be initiated by preparation of laboratory sample. The entire test will be based on cleat analysis, density of the coal and also type of the coal. There are three types of equipments that required doing the entire test on core sample which are POROPERM Machine, OYO Ultrasonic Wave Test Machine and Point Load Test Machine. The whole test will be conducted throughout one semester of study. The outcomes of the test and experiment will be discussed with the supervisor and marked as an indicator for Coalbed Metane potential. The project planning will be a guiding for the further research in the analyzing the coal sample.
