Abstract

The production performances of horizontal drainage wells for the degasification of coal seams have been investigated with a multidimensional, two-phase coal-seam degasification model. The model is written in rectangular coordinates, can handle a number of horizontal wells, and operates in a one-, two-, or three-dimensional (1D, 2D, or 3D) mode. The model accommodates multiple horizontal boreholes originating from a common vertical shaft or horizontal boreholes being drilled from the peripheries of the reservoir. In consideration of the relatively thin but large lateral extent of coal seams, flow dynamics around a horizontal borehole is described in elliptic flow geometry.
