Coalbed Methane: Clean Energy for the World

This article sheds a light on the special geology and production requirements of coal bed methane (CBM). It describes some challenges of drilling and cementing in CBM plays, but unfortunately the authors waste no thought on risks of CBM production like groundwater contamination or massive methane leakage which further damages the climate. From the article …

From Mud to Cement – Building Gas Wells

Graph: Wells with sustained casing pressure (SCP; which is a sign of lacking well integrity) by age. Statistics from the United States Mineral Management Service (MMS) show the percentage of wells with SCP for wells in the outer continental shelf (OCS) area of the Gulf of Mexico, grouped by age of the wells. These data do not include wells in state waters or land locations.

From Mud to Cement – Building Gas Wells A Schlumberger Oilfield Review It is claimed, that “demand for natural gas increases”, and “wellbore construction across gas-bearing formations takes center stage. With few cost-effective remedial measures available, prevention of annular gas flow and sustained casing pressure is key to drilling and completing long-lasting gas wells.” Author(s): …
