Course Information:


This one-day course is designed for technical professionals involved in evaluating or developing Coal Gas (CBM, CSG, CSM, CMM), or who wish to gain a better understanding of CBM issues. The target audience includes engineers, geologists, geophysicists, investors, managers, government officials, planners, and technical support staff. Participants are assumed to have a basic understanding of general engineering and geologic terms. It is recommended that each participant bring a laptop or calculator to solve example problems. Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to: Understand the key coal properties needed for commercial development; Design the appropriate drilling and completion method for a particular play; Recognize the factors controlling gas-in-place, reserves, and productivity; Understand how to collect, analyze, and interpret critical data; Calculate reserve volumes and forecast production; Gain practical insight and techniques for quality-control and due diligence; and network and share ideas with other attendees from the industry

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
