Recent successful field tests of underground coal gasification, UCG, have demonstrated the potential for UCG commercialization. This paper presents results of mathematical modeling and laboratory research studies which have been conducted to improve our understanding of the complex processes involved. These studies include: cavity growth including resource recovery, gas composition, and subsidence. Both single and multi-module results are presented.
