1/1/1975 - Reports of InvestigationsCoal degasification boreholes drilled from the surface have been successfully hydraulically stimulated to increase the flow of gas from the coal. This Bureau of Mines report describes the hydraulic stimulation procedure for a coalbed, the equipment requ...
1/1/1974 - Reports of InvestigationsThe periphery of longwall panels in the Pocahontas No. 3 Coalbed is characterized by a zone of reduced permeability that inhibits the natural drainage of methane. However, natural drainage holes drilled during development have been found to reduce the g...
Degasification of the Mary Lee Coalbed Near Oak Grove, Jefferson County, Alabama, by Vertical Borehole in Advance of Mining1/1/1974 - Reports of InvestigationsA 5-hole pattern was drilled from the surface at a site near Oak Grove, Jefferson County, Alabama, to degasify the gassy Mary Lee coalbed in advance of mining. Gas and water production was monitored for 1 year, 4 months to allow gas flow to stabilize fu...
1/1/1973 - Reports of InvestigationsAs one of its projects for degasification of major panels of coal prior to mining within them, the Bureau of Mines conducted methane emission studies during development of a set of three headings 1,800 feet in a major coal panel (2,700 by 3,500 feet) wh...
1/1/1973 - Reports of InvestigationsThe Bureau of Mines is in the process of degasifying a virgin area in northern West Virginia from the base of an 839-foot-deep vertical borehole.
1/1/1972 - Reports of InvestigationsThe use of a partially slotted 6.5-Inch-inside-diameter vertical pipe to remove methane from a longwall gob area at a depth of 2,260 feet in the Pocahontas No. 3 Coalbed was investigated. The value of gas removed by such a pipe under free-flow condition...
3/1/1969 - Technical Progress ReportsAn experimental degasification program using a vertical borehole and vacuum pump to drain gas from the gob area of a longwall panel was successful at Bethlehem Mines Corporation, Cambria Division, No. 33 coal mine. Sixty-one million cubic feet of methan...
1/1/1962 - Reports of InvestigationsA joint investigation by the Bureau of Mines and the Christopher Coal Co. at the Humphrey No. 7 mine, operating in the Pittsburgh coalbed in northern West Virginia, was undertaken to gain more insight concerning the hazardous emission of methane gas in ...
