Coal Seam Gas Development Studies

Coal Seam Gas (CSG), also known as Coalbed Methane (CBM), ranks as one of the world’s largest sources of natural gas. While CSG has the potential to be a valuable asset in many locations throughout the world, currently only Australia, China, India, and the United States are conducting significant and focused exploitation of these resources. NSAI has worked with most of the top operators in almost every major producing CSG/CBM basin in the world. We understand the importance of honoring all of the project data and understanding the relationship between the coal properties and the development strategy.

Our scope of work generally includes:

  • Geologic assessment of the coal seams’ structure, thickness, and quality
  • Geologic model construction
  • Performance assessments of historical production
  • Reservoir simulation
  • Interpretation of Langmuir isotherm test
  • Comparison of performance data to volumetric analysis
  • Independent reserves and resources assessments, including economics
  • Planning, design, implementation, and appraisal of development programs
  • CSG/CBM training classes and seminars
