Coalbed Methane Reservoir Analysis
This 2-day course will cover recognizing the factors controlling gas-in-place, reserves, and productivity. You will understand how to collect, quality-check, and interpret critical data, and determine how to select the optimum well completion and stimulation methods. Other topics include:
- Review the steps for calculating reserve volumes and forecasting production
- Recognize why various successful projects have required different development techniques
- Review the CBM development steps, costs, and timelines
- Gain practical insight and techniques for performing due diligence
- Review the global CBM activities, technologies, and future opportunities
Why You Should Attend
Get a detailed review of the data, techniques, and strategies needed for evaluating and developing coalbed methane projects.
