Methane is the principal constituent of natural gas and constitutes over 90% (v/v) by volume, regardless of the source. Coal, oil, and natural gas have traditionally been the 3 fossil fuels of choice for further conversion and upgrading to fuels and fuel additives, chemicals, and petrochemicals, and for generation of electric power. The advent of “Fracking”, a technology first commercialized in the United States around 2008, made it possible to harvest and recover huge quantities of shale gas and associated gas liquids, trapped within tight pore spaces of shale rock deposits or coal bed methane, considered to be 2 unconventional sources of methane [1-3], other than gas hydrates.
