Description

This presentation will provide an overview of the Fruitland coal bed methane (CBM) play in the San Juan basin. Some of the unique challenges in CBM development will be addressed, including the following:

  • Pressure-dependent permeability

     

  • Nonlinear material balance

     

  • Negative decline

     

  • Infill well performance differences from parent wells

     

  • Completion techniques

     

  • Critical importance of low producing pressure on abandonment

     

  • CO2 issues
  • Water disposal issues

The lunch will cost $35 to all those who pay at the door on the day of the event regardless of membership.
