      of coal and the greater the depth of coal, the higher is the coal’s gas content. Actual gas contents of various coal seams to mineable depths of ft ( m) indicate a range of 35 ft3/t (1 25 m3/t). Methane is the major component of coal bed methane (CBM), accounting for 80 95%. The balance is made up of ethane, propane. GEOLOGIC STRUCTURE The structural geology of the four anthracite coal fields within the folded and faulted Valley and Ridge Province is much more complex than the relatively flat-laying strata of most of the bituminous coal fields within the Allegheny Plateau of western Pennsylvania, shown on Figures. and

      Initial gas-in-place and gas remaining within the drainage area for each GGV after mining of the E-1 panel indicated initial gas amounts ranging between × 10 6 m 3 and × 10 6 m 3 within the drainage area of GGVs. At the time of panel completion, 60–80% of these quantities were already captured, showing the importance of GGVs for. The San Juan basin leads the nation in coalbed methane production. Production from Fruitland coal beds has increased from 3 Bcf from coalbed wells in to Bcf from ˜2, wells in , to account for 51% of the basin's total gas production from all .

Site-specific and regional geologic considerations for coalbed gas drainage. Washington, D.C.: U.S. Dept. of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, [] (OCoLC) The objective of this paper is to provide information on specific geologic factors that should be considered prior to, during, and after the drilling of coalbed gas drainage boreholes.

Many of the commonsense considerations that have been learned through many years of Bureau of Mines experience, but have generally not been reported formally.

• Between andindustry drilled ~ 6, coal-bed methane wells (Schraufnagel and Schafer, ). COALBED METHANE Coals can act as both a source rock of natural gas and as a reservoir rock.

When this is the case, coalbed methane "coal gas" can be produced8. The gas is generated from the woody organic matter that forms the coals. At shallow burial depths, relatively low volumes of gas may be generated by bacterial processes within the coals.

Stratigraphy and geologic structure determine the shape, continuity and permeability of coal and are therefore critical considerations for designing exploration and production strategies for coalbed methane. Coal in the United states is dominantly of Pennsylvanian, Cretaceous and Tertiary age, and to date, more than 90% of the coalbed methane produced is from.

Horizontal methane drainage borehole completion designs, drilling strategies, and degasification lead times may need to be adjusted for site-specific conditions due to mine design, geology, and the gas content of the coalbed.

This study investigates different horizontal methane drainage borehole patterns, borehole lengths, and degasification.The U.S. Geological Survey, in partnership with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the North Slope Borough, and the Arctic Slope Regional Corporation conducted a four-year study designed to identify, define, and delineate a shallow coalbed natural gas (CBNG) resource with the potential to provide locally produced, affordable power to the community of Wainwright, Alaska.Coalbed gas contents also decrease southward in the play and project economics become progressively leaner.

In these areas there is an additional need to focus development by locating production sweet-spots, or "fairways," quickly.

Because of these factors, Texaco used seismic to help guide its most recent development activity in the play.
