Abstract

This paper describes the mathematical and numerical developments for a series of finite-difference models that simulate the simultaneous flow of water and gas through dual-porosity coal seams during the degasification process. Models for unstimulated and hydraulically stimulated degasification wells are included in this series. The hydraulically stimulated wells are assumed to be intercepted by a single infinite- or finite-conductivity vertical fracture.
