Abandoned Coal Mine Methane Services

We have extensive experience forecasting methane recovery from abandoned coal mines. Modeling abandoned coal mine methane is different from conventional natural gas, or even coalbed methane. The key to obtaining reliable forecasts lies in developing an integrated approach to understanding the history of the mine, the current status of the underground workings, and potential strategies for draining of the remaining gas from the remaining void. In that context, Raven Ridge Resources offers the following services relative to abandoned mine methane recovery projects:

Raven Ridge Resources has extensive experience in numerical modeling and forecasting methane recovery from active and abandoned coal mines using a three dimensional computational fluid dynamics simulators, Modeling abandoned coal mine methane (CMM) is different from conventional gas, or even coalbed methane (CBM) reservoir simulation in several respects:

Raven Ridge and its associates offer the following services relative to abandoned mine methane recovery projects:

  • Data Collection and Analysis
  • Resource Determination
  • Project Specific Production Forecasting
  • Methane Reserves Determination and Categorization
  • Project Economic Analysis and Business Planning

These items are discussed in more detail below. The quality and quantity of input data for the forecasting model has a significant impact on the degree of uncertainty of the forecasts and hence the financial risk associated with a project. Raven Ridge recommends risk analysis and will provide it if desired by the client of business partner. Please contact us for a project specific cost estimate.
