The Bureau of Mines made laboratory absorption measurements on oil shale samples, which showed that the amount of methane absorbed is proportional to pressure and oil yield, and can be much larger than would be predicted based solely on porosity. Oil sh...
The Upper Freeport coalbed was studied in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. This coalbed lies about 650 feet below the Pittsburgh coalbed and contains the largest remaining reserves of any coalbed in the county.
Methane Emission from U.S. Coal Mines in 1975, A Survey : A Supplement to Information Circulars 8558 and 86591/1/1977 - Information CircularsThis Bureau of Mines report tabulates methane emissions from U.S. Bituminous coal mines with daily emission rates of at least 100,000 cfd according to states, counties, and coalbeds. Most of the methane emitted is from mines in the Appalachian States. T...
The Beckley Mine is one of five new mines in a heretofore unmined portion of the Beckley coalbed. The remoteness of these new mines from prior mining and their greater overburden preclude applying methane emission experience obtained in the old mines. F...
The Bureau of Mines evaluated the hydraulic stimulation of a gob degasification borehole to determine if this procedure would aid in degasifying a longwall panel.
Two degasification test boreholes were drilled to depths of 1,238 and 1,212 feet on Bureau of Mines property at Bruceton, Pennsylvania, as part of the Bureau of Mines long-range coal degasification program.
This report describes three coal mine ventilation studies by the Bureau of Mines in which sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) was used as a tracer gas.
Methane Gas Content of the Mary Lee Group of Coalbeds, Jefferson, Tuscaloosa, and Walker Counties, Ala.It is estimated that more than 1 trillion cubic feet of methane is contained within the coals of the Mary Lee Group in Jefferson, eastern Tuscaloosa, and southern Walker Counties, Alabama. It is calculated that approximately 90 pct of the methane is at ...
The methane emissions from an advancing coal mine section were continuously monitored for 120 days. During this time, the section advanced 2,000 feet into virgin Pittsburgh coalbed producing 54,565 tons of coal with a total methane emission of 91 millio...
This Bureau of Mines study reviews the geological factors that affect methane in the Beckley coalbed in southern West Virginia, including overburden, coalbed structure, type and changes in lithology above and below the Beckley coalbed.
