In order to improve CBM production in coal seams with high in-situ stress and low permeability, hydraulic technology is one of the most commonly used ways to increase coal permeability. However, in traditional water jet cutting, there are a series of problems in a coal seam with high gas content, such as large jet flow resulting in serious borehole blockage and poor working environment. The traditional slotting pressure is mostly concentrated in 30 ~ 60MPa, and little attention is paid to the ultra-high pressure and low flow water jet cutting when the cutting pressure reaches 100MPa. This presentation proposes a technology of ultra-high pressure with low flow water jet slotting. The research results have shown that CBM production can be greatly increased, which can also eliminate the hidden danger of gas disaster in coal seams.
