…the government is aware of the Nu Skin issue and more importantly aware that it is a problem in Chinese society that will eventually be addressed.

The coal seam gas is not like regular NG fields that start fast and slow down over yrs. These wells start slow and then open up over 5yrs or so and get better up to then. Then they drop off dramatically unless they are fracked open again and the process starts again. With NG prices going way up this winter you can either sell off the wells or spend far less to rework them then to drill new one. Plus there are plenty of company's that will do this for a share of the profits so the trust does not have to spend the money. You only abandon a well that can't be brought back or has down hole problems.
