Production Enhancement

We have a well established, leading program of research on enhanced recovery from coal seam reservoirs for gas production and coal mine gas management. This work comprises a range of capabilities including the following;

  • Laboratory characterisation of gas adsorption and permeability for multiple gas species relevant for enhanced recovery by CO2 or N2 injection.
  • Reservoir simulation of the enhanced recovery process to predict the optimal well field arrangement and estimate economics
  • Equipment and expertise for the conduct of field trials including remote field laboratory for data acquisition and communications, u-tube reservoir fluid sampling system, CO2 injection pump, diesel powered generators.
