Schlumberger

Coalbed Methane Consulting Services

Specialized petrotechnical services to help tackle the unique technical challenges faced in coal basins

Coalbed methane is a significant component of natural gas production. Schlumberger petrotechnical specialists have experience in more than 65 coal basins worldwide, have published numerous technical papers and articles about these reserves, and frequently present short courses on its development.

These consultants are committed to working closely with you to ensure that your project results are consistent with specific business strategies, lowering costs and improving efficiency. Services include

  • basin assessment and fairway delineation
  • exploration target selection
  • resource mapping and assessment
  • prospect evaluation
  • well testing and production forecasting
  • fracture treatment design and optimization
  • coalbed reservoir simulation
  • reserves determination and economic evaluation
  • mentoring and technology transfer.

Advanced coalbed methane technology

Together with ProCADE well analysis software, ECLIPSE reservoir simulation software is used to model desorption and diffusion, consider dual porosity, handle variable reservoir properties, and highlight features for coal mine applications. The platforms have the capability to model enhanced coalbed methane production through CO2 flooding and geologic sequestration in deep coalbeds.

Reliable coalbed methane evaluation

For operators taking core, TerraTek rock mechanics and core analysis services supply a crew on the wellsite that provides desorption- and preservation-gas sampling along with field-desorption analysis on whole core, cuttings, or sidewall samples. In the laboratory, TerraTek experts subject samples to numerous tests to determine gas in place, storage capacity, and other production parameters.
