LAW OF UKRAINE

of May 21, 2009 No. 1392-VI

About gas (methane) of coal fields

(as amended on 20-09-2019)

This Law determines the legal, economic, ecological and organizational principles of activities in the field of geological studying of gas (methane) of coal fields, including trial development, production and its withdrawal during decontamination and further use as material and / go energy resource.

Section I. General provisions

Article 1. Determination of terms

In this Law the following terms are used in such value:

gas production (methane) of coal fields - economic activity which includes complex of the technical actions directed to withdrawal of gas (methane) of coal fields from coal layers, the containing breeds and underground cavities of the operating mines and those which prepare for operation, and coal fields which industrial development was not performed, irrespective of their further use, and also the fulfilled coal fields if the withdrawn gas (methane) intends for further use as material and/or energy resource;

coal layer - single natural accumulation in subsoil of fossil coal - solid combustible mineral of sedimentary origin;

the coal field - natural accumulation of coal layers and the containing breeds;

gas (methane) of coal fields - gas mix which accompanies coal layers and the containing breeds;

economic activity on geological studying, gas production (methane) of coal fields - geological studying, including trial development, and industrial development of the coal field for the purpose of withdrawal of gas (methane) of coal fields from it for further use;

economic activity on use of gas (methane) of coal fields - production electric, thermal and/or other types of energy if gas (methane) of coal fields is the main energy carrier, and also when using gas (methane) of coal fields as the main technology raw materials;

decontamination - set of the actions directed to forced withdrawal of gas (methane) from coal layers, the containing breeds and underground cavities;

controlled emission of gas (methane) of coal fields liberation of gas (methane) from coal fields to the surrounding environment as a result of implementation of economic activity under conditions of observance of requirements concerning protection of the surrounding environment;

uncontrollable emission of gas (methane) from coal fields - liberation of gas (methane) of coal fields to the surrounding environment which is not connected with implementation of economic activity.

Article 2. Coverage of this Law

Operation of this Law extends to the relations which arise in connection with improvement of working conditions and labor safety of miners, geological studying of subsoil for the purpose of identification of inventories, further gas production (methane) from coal fields which industrial development was not performed, irrespective of their subsequent use, gas production (methane) of coal fields in case of decontamination of the operating mines and those which prepare for operation, and on the fulfilled coal fields, use of gas (methane) of coal fields as material and/or energy resource.

Article 3. The legislation in the field of geological studying, production and use of gas (methane) of coal fields

The relations connected with geological studying, production and use of gas (methane) of coal fields are regulated by the Code of Ukraine about subsoil, the Land code of Ukraine, the Mountain law of Ukraine, the laws of Ukraine "About oil and gas", "About alternative types of liquid and gas fuel", "About protection of the surrounding environment", "About labor protection", this Law and another regulatory legal acts.

Article 4. Regulations and rules in the field of geological studying, production and use of gas (methane) of coal fields

Designing, construction, reconstruction, repair, operation and liquidation of production facilities and subsequent use of gas (methane) of coal fields, compliance of gas (methane) of coal fields to conditions of access and transportation by gas transmission networks are regulated by regulatory legal acts which are obligatory for accomplishment by all subjects of the relations in the field of geological studying, production and subsequent use (transportation, storage) gas (methane) of coal fields.

Article 5. Features of regulation of the relations in the field of geological studying, production and use of gas (methane) of coal fields

Features of regulation of the relations in the field of geological studying, production and use of gas (methane) of coal fields are predetermined by such objective conditions of production and use of gas (methane) of coal fields:

lack of the guaranteed availability of gas (methane) of coal fields and the guaranteed high-quality composition of gas in the coal field;

technology complexity of commercial production and use of gas (methane) of coal fields as a result of uncertainty of its distribution and high-quality structure;

raised vzryvo-and fire danger of gas (methane) of coal fields and products of its conversion and need with respect thereto ensuring reliability and safety of operation of objects in the field of geological studying, production and use of gas (methane) of coal fields.

Section II. State policy in the field of geological studying, production and use of gas (methane) of coal fields

Article 6. The principles of state policy in the field of geological studying, production and use of gas (methane) of coal fields

State policy in the field of geological studying, production and use of gas (methane) of coal fields is based on the principles:

state regulation of activities for geological studying, production and use of gas (methane) of coal fields;

increases in safety and efficiency of operation of objects on which coal production, and geological studying, production and use of gas (methane) of coal fields is performed;

assistance of diversification of sources of supply of energy carriers;

ensuring protection of the rights and interests of all subjects of the relations which arise in connection with geological studying of subsoil for the purpose of identification of inventories of gas (methane) of coal fields, industrial development of gas (methane) of coal fields and conversion of its products, and also consumers of gas (methane) of coal fields;

assistance to development of the competitive relations in the field of activities for geological studying, production and use of gas (methane) of coal fields;

protection of the surrounding environment;

ensuring rational use of subsoil;

developments of international cooperation and implementation of innovative technologies in this sphere.
