Fundamentals of Coalbed Methane Reservoir Engineering

John Seidle


This straightforward introduction to coalbed methane gives insight and detail to industry professionals involved with this unique energy resource. Author John Seidle reviews global and U.S. coals and coalbed methane resources, takes the reader through the fundamentals of coal and its importance to coal gas production, and finishes with a discussion of the calculation of probabilistic coalbed methane reserves and pilot philosophy.

In this long-awaited book, Seidle also examines coal deposits as reservoirs, discusses the physics of gas storage in coal and its production, and covers basic equations of mass balance and production rates, negative decline, simulation of coal gas recovery, and enhanced coalbed methane recovery.

This is an indispensable resource for students and practicing reservoir, production, and operations engineers, geoscientists, landmen, and managers.
