The rule-based approach to methane concentration prediction is presented in this paper. The applied solution is based on the modification called fixed of the separate-and-conquer rule induction approach. We also proposed the modification of a rule quality evaluation based on confidence intervals calculated for positive and negative examples covered by the rule. The characteristic feature of the considered methane forecasting model is that it omits the readings of the sensor being the subject of forecasting. The approach is evaluated on a real life data set acquired during a week in a coal mine. The results show the advantages of the introduced method (in terms of both the prediction accuracy and knowledge extraction) in comparison to the standard approaches typically implemented in the analytical tools.
