Directional drilling f or coalbed degasif ication is an outgrowth of the techniques developed for degasification through the use of Directional drilling for coalbed degasification book horiz ontal holes and surface vertical, stimulated wells ("conventional" CBM wells) using modified oilfie ld Size: KB.
Surface drilled horizontal coalbed methane (CBM) wells have become the predominant method for degasification in advance of mining, and gas recovery in areas where mining is not planned in the near future, or where the coal is unmineable. Target Drilling, Inc.
[TD] began as a contractor providing in-mine directional drilling services accurately drilling horizontal boreholes, primarily for degasification in advance of mining development, proceeded by abandoned mine verification, water drainage and coal exploration, both in-seam and targeting adjacent coalbeds.

The coalbed gas and coalmine methane industries have increasingly relied on directional drilling to unite vertical and horizontal drilling of the same coal bed.
For the coalbed gas industry, the technical concept of a long horizontal well theoretically draining coalbed gas from a single site in a km 2 area can readily replace 16 vertical. A 3-inch pilot hole was directionally drilled to intercept the Freeport coalbed horizon horizontally at Mather, Pennsylvania, as part of a Bureau of Mines degasification project.
The original concept was to continue the horizontal drilling into the coalbed, after the initial intercept, with a total of three horizontal holes eventually being completed.

The use of directional drilling techniques will be particularly useful in areas where access to gassy coalbeds is not possible underground, and where topography makes multiple sites for vertical degasification holes impractical or prohibitively expensive.
TDI began drilling horizontal CBM wells from the surface in after directionally drilling over in-mine degasification boreholes greater than m ( ft) from toshielding longwall gateroad development and perpendicular to longwall gateroad development (Figures and ).Primarily drilled to degas future longwall mining areas, TDI’s dual CBM well patented.
Pilot Hole Drilling. The directional borehole (EM) was located at the top of a ridge to allow sufficient overburden above the coalbed for a circular arc of to radians per meters (5 to 6 degrees per feet) to be drilled to reach the coalbed horizontally. The vertical distance to the coalbed was meters (1, feet).Cited by: Target Drilling (TD) has been in business since early Headquartered in Southwestern Pennsylvania, TD provide's contract directional drilling services to drill horizontal boreholes from within underground mines and horizontal, vertical and vertical-to-horizontal boreholes from the surface.
horizontal coalbed methane wells drilled from surface reduced from 21 to 15 days, greatly improving well economics, in addition to reducing the risk drilling longer laterals. The use of a gamma detector close to the drill bit to more accurately steer the horizontal borehole in the coalbed, further reduced drilling times to 10 days on some wells.
It provides the latest advancements in the production of coal bed methane covering a variety of topics, from exploration to gas processing, for commercial utilization. Additionally, it presents the origin of gas in coal, reservoir engineering, control of methane in coal mines, production techniques, water management, and gas processing.
Directional drilling, in its most basic sense, is drilling that isn't done vertically but is instead done horizontally, at an angle or with a curve. It is also sometimes called directional boring, and it can be used in a variety of natural gas and oil extraction situations.
Several techniques used to drill and complete horizontal wells in coalbed reservoirs are discussed and compared with each other to distinguish their application. Introduction The US Bureau of Mines has demonstrated that methane drainage by horizontal and directional boreholes is a safe and effective method of removing methane in advance of Cited by: In a dual well system while drilling the coalbed laterals, compressed air is injected down the cased vertical production well to aerate the coalbed drilling effluent and produced water assisting its removal via the directional access well to keep the pressure of the drilling fluid underbalanced.
