Laboratory Analyses in Support of Gas Shale and CBM Exploration and Development

CBM Solutions offers a wide variety of services in support of Gas Shale and CBM exploration and development. We will design and carry out a specific analytical program to suit the project. Our services include high pressure isotherms of all gases, Langmuir modeling, Extended Langmuir modeling, coal/organic petrology, vitrinite reflectance and proximate and other typical coal analyses. Our gas shale protocol includes mineralogy by XRD, thin sections, SEM and fracture analyses, total organic carbon and Rock Evaluation, permeability by Hg immersion, crushed samples (core and cuttings) and under reservoir conditions, porosity to various gases and Hg porosimetry. Our rock mechanics/geomechanics tests are carried out using a servo controlled triaxial apparatus under prescribed stress states and pore pressures. We can deform whole core samples ranging form 1 inch to 4 inches in diameter, alleviating the necessity of recoring existing core. In addition, we measure ultrasonic compressional and shear wave velocities to collect dynamic elastic moduli that can be used for calibration of logs.

CBM Solutions - GasShales

The analytical techniques are designed-for-purpose and are based on the recognition that conventional rock analyses and coalbed methane protocols are, for the most part, not applicable to tight, fine grained rocks. Our protocol begins with assisting where necessary with well design, continues at the well site, through to the laboratory and numerical analyses and culminates with successful well development.

CBM Solutions - RockMechanics

When our geomechanical stratigraphy is linked with our stress sensitivity permeability analyses, our clients are armed with the key tools for screening gas shales and coal seams for exploration and exploitation through optimization of drilling and completions.
