|Coalbed methane reservoir modeling consultants provide input and advice about GIS applications, geologic mapping, and advanced reservoir modeling processes.
Recovering gas from coalbeds requires a two stop process. Consulting issues include coal leasing management as well as reservoir drainage issues.
Dewatering of coal mines will cause water drawdown.
This will reduce the hydrostatic pressure in the coal thereby allowing the methane to desorb.
Coalbed methane reservoir modeling consultants are necessary to help support the mine development.
These consultants will estimate the initial and current gas content and the gas pressure. Raw data is needed for the reservoir analysis.
Coalbed methane reservoir modeling consultants can help with the estimation of the gas content or the amount of storage capacity.
The also provide economic values to consider in the planning process.
Development needs to be uniform in order to prevent drainage of the reservoir.
Drainage requires the consultants to evaluate individual well production. Currently modeling simulation programs are being developed to evaluate the drainage from a number of wells.
Coalbed methane reservoirs will form at different depths but the majority of testing and exploration occurs in reservoirs that are above 6000 feet in depth. Shallow reservoirs usually generate low amounts of methane gas but there have been large accumulations found.
The deeper reservoirs are the most attractive because they provide the greatest potential and they have the lowest water saturation.
Thermogenic gas causes over pressured coalbed modeling reservoirs to occur at a variety of depths. This gas migrates up from the deep beds of coal.
