wells were drilled on and near the anticline in search of coalbed methane. No commercial production was established but the Houston 3 well reportedly flowed gas at mcf/day from perforations in five coal beds in the Tyonek Formation at subsea depths of -1, to -1, feet. Coalbed methane (CBM) occurs in coal beds of Mississippian and Pennsylvanian (Carboniferous) age in the northern, central, and southern Appalachian basin coal regions, which extend almost continuously from Pennsylvania southward to Alabama. Most commercial CBM production in the Appalachian basin is from three structural subbasins: (1) the Dunkard basin in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and northern West.
4. Coalbed Methane in the Appalachian Basin The Appalachian coal basin includes the key coal producing states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, and in , this region produced million tons of coal (more than 40 percent of total U.S. coal production). Coal beds become prominent in the lower part of both of these wells, suggesting a correlation with the coal-bearing, gas-producing formations in the Cook Inlet basin. Coalbed methane. The prevalence of coal seams in the Tertiary rocks around the Cook Inlet and Susitna basins gives rise to a major resource potential from coalbed methane.

Coal bed methane is similar to natural gas, differing only in the way that it is formed and stored in the Earth’s crust. Natural gas itself is considered to be the ‘cleanest’ fossil fuel, and is therefore an attractive alternative to coal. In , CBM supplied 7% of the natural gas in the U.S., and it .

Cook Inlet Basin of south-central Alaska is a forearc basin containing voluminous Tertiary coal deposits with sufficient methane content to suggest a major coalbed gas resource. Coals ranging in thickness from 2 to 50 ft ( to 15 m) and in gas content from 50 to scf/ton ( to cm2/g) occur in Miocene-Oligocene fluvial deposits of the Kenai Group.
Coal Bed Methane: From Prospect to Pipeline is the proceedings of the 25th anniversary of the North American Coal Bed Methane Forum. It provides the latest advancements in the production of coal bed methane covering a variety of topics, from exploration to gas processing, for commercial utilization.
Additionally, it presents the origin of gas in coal, reservoir engineering, control of methane. Cook Inlet Basin of south-central Alaska is a forearc basin containing voluminous Tertiary coal deposits with sufficient methane content to suggest a major coalbed gas resource.
Coal Bed Methane: Theories and Applications, Second Edition, captures the full lifecycle of a coal bed methane well and offers petroleum geologists and engineers a single source for a broad range of coal bed methane (CBM) applications.
The vast coal resources in the United States continue to produce tremendous amounts of natural gas, contributing to a diverse range of energy : $ Cook Inlet Basin of south-central Alaska is a forearc basin containing voluminous Tertiary coal deposits with sufficient methane content to suggest a major coalbed gas resource.
Coals ranging in thickness from 2 to 50 ft ( to 15 m) and in gas content from 50 to scf/ton ( to cm 2 /g) occur in Miocene-Oligocene fluvial deposits of. Developmental geology of coalbed methane from shallow to deep in Rocky Mountain basins and in Cook Inlet–Matanuska basin, Alaska, U.S.A.
and Canada Coalbed methane is produced in Rocky Mountain basins at depths ranging from 45 m ( ft) to 1, m (6, ft) from coal of lignite to low-volatile bituminous rank.
Coal beds in the upper. Another untapped but potential resource of large magnitude is coalbed methane, which has been estimated to total 1, trillion cubic feet (28 trillion cubic meters) by T.N. SmithCoalbed methane potential for Alaska and drilling results for the upper Cook Inlet Basin: Intergas, May 15 – 19,Tuscaloosa, University of Alabama, p.
In this context, this paper explores the prospects for coalbed methane and shale gas in regional detail over the period to under a stringent climate stabilization constraint (i.e., a halving of global energy-related CO. emissions in compared to the level).
In the first step, the competitiveness of coalbed methane and. Overall estimates of coalbed methane resources in the Northern Appalachian coal basin indicate there may be Tm 3 of gas-in-place contained in the coal of the basin (Kelafant et al., ) and Tm 3 of technically recoverable coalbed methane (U.S.
Geological Survey National Oil and Gas Resource Assessment Team, ). The recovery of coalbed methane requires a combination of oilfield and coalmining as well as new processes.
This comprehensive and current reference covers all aspects of coalbed methane technology. This book discusses the principles of methane storage in coal and the practices of producing the methane economically on a commercial scale.
Advanced Reservoir and Production Engineering for Coal Bed Methane presents the reader with design systems that will maximize production from worldwide coal bed methane reservoirs.
Authored by an expert in the field with more than 40 years of’ experience, the author starts with much needed introductory basics on gas content and diffusion of gas in coal, crucial for anyone in the mining and.
And while Cook Inletkeeper has made significant progress staving off a new wave of coalbed methane (CBM) development in Cook Inlet, the State continues to look to BLM and state lands as prospects for CBM leasing in prime salmon spawning habitats.
Coalbed gas has been considered a hazard since the early 19th century when the first mine gas explosions occurred in the United States in and France in In eastern Australia methane-related mine disasters occurred late in the 19th century with hundreds of lives lost in New South Wales.
the middle of the 20th century coalbed gas was considered a mixture of methane (firedamp) and carbon dioxide (blackdamp). Ethane, when detected, was attributed to contamination from natural gas horizons below the coal (wea.
More recent analyses of coalbed gas have shown it to be a complex mixture. Everything you need to know about coal and coalbed methane production can be found in this text. A must have for any operator of coalbed methane wells and/or reserve evaluator of coalbed methane wells.

The cores were placed in canisters and later tested for gas content, the results proving the viability of coalbed methane exploration in the upper Cook Inlet Basin. The first commercial activity was initiated by David Lappi who acquired a farm-out from Unocal near Houston.

The nonmarine Tertiary strata in the upper Cook Inlet were first called the Kenai Group by Dall and Harris in and included all coal-bearing strata in the Cook Inlet. Barnes and Cobb () later described these units along the Kenai Peninsula, naming them the Kenai Formation.Coalbed Methane (CBM) ranks as one of the world’s largest sources of natural gas.
While CBM has the potential to be a highly valuable asset in many locations throughout the world, currently only Australia, China, and the United States are conducting significant and focused exploitation of these resources.
Efficiently developing these.Coalbed methane (CBM or coal-bed methane), coalbed gas, coal seam gas (CSG), or coal-mine methane (CMM) is a form of natural gas extracted from coal beds.
In recent decades it has become an important source of energy in United States, Canada, Australia, and other countries. The term refers to methane adsorbed into the solid matrix of the coal. It is called 'sweet gas' because of its lack of.
