dc.description.abstractThis work proposes a novel and cost-effective approach to determine coalbed methane (CBM) production and composition from individual coal seams in a multi-zone completed CBM well. The novel method uses water to cover individual coal seams in a low pressure CBM well followed by an Echometer fluid level survey to determine the water level. Corresponding gas flow measurements and natural gas chromatography analysis are used to determine gas production and composition from unique zones. A field test using this technology is conducted in Central Appalachia for a multi-zone CBM well containing 18 coal seams. Test results show that the shallow coal seams contribute the majority of the total CBM production in this multi-zone well, and the deeper coal seams contain more heavy hydrocarbons like ethane and propane.
