- The paper describes the current state of works on the gas component development of the energy potential of coal deposits in Russia. The development of the following technologies is being considered: underground coal gasification; industrial methane extraction from coal deposits; methane extraction of abandoned coal mines; methane degasification of working mines; "Coalgas" technology. It is noted that the underground coal gasification technology has the most favorable prospects for its development in Russia. The description of the specific plans for practical application of some discussed technologies in the industrial environment of the largest coal-mining region of Russia – the Kuznetsk Basin – is given. It is confirmed that the effective use of the energy potential of the gas coal deposit is the required (even more - obligatory) component of the development process of the region; the implementation of this principle in practice will become one of the decisive factors in Russian coal industry modernization in accordance with call of times.
