9/18/2020 - Research projectsA project to address the lack of information on longwall-induced subsurface strata deformations and stresses and their effect on shale gas well casings by conducting detailed analysis and instrumentation on unconventional shale gas wells.
9/16/2020 - Research projectsA project to evaluate and quantify subsurface overburden deformations in longwall abutment pillars under shallow overburden depths, and to employ field instrumentation results and 3D numerical modeling to identify critical parameters.
Transport Model for Shale Gas Well Leakage Through the Surrounding Fractured Zones of a Longwall Mine9/1/2020 - Peer reviewed journal articlesAn article presenting an analytical model of gas transport through fractures in a low permeable stratum.
Cross Formational Flow of Water into Coalbed Methane Reservoirs: Controls on Relative Permeability Curve Shape and Production Profile3/1/2017 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis article by NIOSH investigates the impact of water flow from an external source into coalbed on production performance and also on reservoir variables.
9/1/2005 - Information CircularsWater well drillers are exposed to high levels of noise while working. Drillers and owners can work together to prevent noise-induced hearing loss, and measures can be taken to reduce exposure to hazardous noise.
1/1/1995 - Reports of InvestigationsA hydrologic-subsidence investigation was performed to evaluate the effects of longwall mining on the local groundwater regime through field monitoring and numerical modeling.
Seven degasification wells have been completed in the Pittsburgh coalbed at the New Emerald Mine near Waynesburg, Pennsylvania. The Bureau of Mines performed stimulation treatments on five of the wells.
The Bureau of Mines examined the wellbore of a vertical gas drainage well in the Mary Lee coalbed to determine the results of specific completion procedures in coal. A jet-slotting tool was used to cut four vertical slots through the casing about 1 ft b...
In this Bureau of Mines investigation, production was monitored for 1 year at over 30 coalbed gas-drainage boreholes located in Alabama, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.
7/1/1972 - Technical Progress ReportsAn oil well penetrating the Pittsburgh bituminous coalbed in northern West Virginia was plugged and safely mined through 3 months later. Effectiveness of the plugging in preventing reservoir gas from entering the mine through the well hole was verified ...
