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...
Tests were conducted to study shelf life of evacuated vacutainer samplers prior to sampling and also to check the stability of sampled gases prior to analysis.
Discusses research to determine the effectiveness of long holes in degasifying an area of the upper split of the lower Sunnyside coalbed at Kaiser SteelCompany Sunnyside No. 1 mine. These holes were drilled from the two outside entries of a section that...
The Bureau of Mines investigated factors that influence the formation of methane and other hydrocarbon gases in coal, which is an integral part of the coalification process.
The Bureau of Mines investigated the presence and extent of methane accumulations in mine roof cavities using a full-scale mine model. Methane was released at a constant rate into the roof of a cavity built onto a 700-ft wind tunnel.
The Bureau of Mines estimated the methane content of a coal, which depends primarily upon rank and pressure, from the adsorption equation V = kPn, where k and n are constants related to rank.
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.
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.
