ABSTRACT

Accidents in the past have shown that the output of methane from underground to the
surface is an important phenomenon in terms of threats to the population, property and
critical infrastructure, there are many accidents, explosions of methane a year and a
large number of smaller explosions and "the near misses" that have never been reported.
Nevertheless, these minor explosions and "these near-misses" threaten people, property,
etc. In this article we will focus on emergency situations which may be caused by the
output of methane to the surface, measure and evaluate risk using systematic methods of
analysis of mine gases exit to the surface.

Keywords: methane, risk, dangerous, underground and surface accidents
