Dr. Flores is a retired Research Scientist of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) where he assessed and investigated coal and coalbed methane resources in the United States from 1975 to 2010. He was project chief and group leader managing estimation of coal and coalbed methane reserves in the conterminous U.S. and Alaska coal basins. He worked with State Geological Surveys, Federal Agencies, and coal mining and coalbed methane companies to implement the USGS National Coal, Oil, and Gas Assessments Programs.
Dr. Flores managed Technical Assistance projects on coal and coalbed methane in Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, China, Indonesia, New Zealand, Philippines, and South Africa. He advised and trained staff of foreign government and non-governmental agencies to explore, develop, and commercialize coal and coalbed methane.
Dr. Flores authored over 500 publications in national and international scientific journals, edited 15 special journal volumes, and presented over 250 talks at national and international scientific conferences. He graduated BS from University of the Philippines, MS from Tulsa University, and PhD from Louisiana State University. He is a recipient of the U.S. Department of Interior Meritorious Service Award and Distinguished Service Award, Geological Society of America Gilbert Cady Goal Geology Award, University of the Philippines Distinguished Alumni in Geology Award, and a Erskine Fellow of the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. He is a member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Coal Geology for two decades.
"If you want a review of coal and coalbed methane: get this book. It is rare for a book to be so comprehensive on such a diverse topic such as coal. I'd recommend this for both the seasoned coal professional as well as the newly initiated."- Dr. Tim A. Moore, Managing Director, Cipher Consulting Ltd., Adjunct Associate Professor, Department of Geological Sciences, University of Canterbury, New Zealand
The book entitled Coal and Coalbed Gas: Fueling the Future is a very much anticipated book for those of us who are involved in the CBM industry in that it provides a complete, comprehensive review of coal from genesis to coalbed gas resource management, something that was lacking in single, publically available publications prior to the release of this book.- Russell Stands-Over-Bull, Ph.D., Sr. Geologic Advisor, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, Denver, Colorado, USA
"Romeo Flores is a world-leading expert on coal geology and he has written an important book. Coalbed methane has become a significant component of world natural gas production, and it is a critical aspect of mine safety. However, there has not been an authoritative book on coalbed methane, until now.- Dr. David B. Rutledge, Kiyo and Eiko Tomiyasu Professor, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California USA
"Dr. Romey Flores is a world-class expert in coal geology, coalbed methane, and a pioneer in biogenic CBM. This book well summarized scientific knowledge and industrial experience in CBM exploration and production. It also raised an important point of sustainable CBM production through developing and implementing emerging technologies of biogenic coalbed gas from abandoned mines and coal seams with no gas-generating history. This is a must-read book for scientists, engineers, and managers involved in coal and CBM."- Dr. Song Jin, President and CTO, Next Fuel Inc., Fort Collins, Colorado, USA
"The author, through his extensive knowledge, has clearly explained the widespread application of the fundamentals of coal geology in the exploration of coalbed methane and other petroleum systems. A textbook of this kind that synthesizes various aspects of geology, geochemistry and reservoir properties of coal has been long overdue. The book is an essential guide for geologists, engineers, teachers and their students working in industries such as coal, coalbed methane and other petroleum systems associated with coal bearing sequences".- Dr. Mohinudeen Faiz, Principal Geologist, Origin Energy, Brisbane, Australia
This volume is an important integration of the traditional field of coal geology and the maturing field of coalbed gas. Romeo Flores is a well-known geologist who has conducted research in both disciplines in basins around the world, and most importantly has extensive experience in the Powder River Basin of the US. [Flores] presents a well-balanced, up-to-date and complete discussion of both disciplines in terms of the science and technology, including recent experiments to generate biogenic gas from microbial activity. The volume is a must read and reference source for anyone working in the industry or interested in the future of coal and coalbed gas as energy resources.- Dr. Frank G. Etheridge, Professor Emeritus of Geology, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado, USA
