Abstract

In 1989, a survey of mathematical models which describe methane production from coal seams was presented at the SPE Joint Rocky Mountain Regional/Low Permeability Reservoirs Symposium in Denver, Colorado. This paper was later published in SPE Formation Evaluation Journal March 1991 issue. In this survey, 37 distinct models for coalbed methane production were reviewed in mathematical detail. Since that time, 15 additional mathematical approaches to forecasting reservoir performance, each with its own assumptions and limitations, have been developed. The objective of this paper is to discuss each of these recent models and to compare the assumptions, features, and limitations of these models with each other and with the original 37 models. Recommendations are also presented on the use of each model.
