The paper describes experimental studies of the pyrolytic decomposition of coals from the Maikuben and Ekibastuz basins with analysis of the gases. Heating of coal samples was carried out by the industrial frequency current after preliminary breakdown of the interelectrode distance. The samples were heated in conditions that simulate the subterranean reservoir to simulate the process of underground pyrolytic conversion into combustible gases and fluids. Experiments were carried out on the samples of coal weighing about 5 kg with the interelectrode distance 150 mm.
