Title: Methane recovery from coalbeds project technology test projects evaluation of candidate projects

Abstract

Of the twelve candidate methane recovery projects evaluated, eight have sufficient information for a fair ranking. Three of the other four had concepts which did not offer any features not found in the eight ranked projects. The four projects recommended for further pursuit were selected by TRW on the basis of potential technology gains, economics, transferability of generated data, and on the potential for evolving widely used concepts. The selected projects are: (1) Occidental Research/Island Creek Coal - horizontal boreholes in advance of mining, (2) Bethlehem Mines - vertical wells in advance of mining, (3) Waynesburg College - multiple completion technology project, and (4) Pennsylvania Energy Resources - multiple completion, multiple wells in anthracite. The major features of these projects are described.
