Coalbed Methane (CBM) shows great potential to be an important energy source. One key factor for the successful development of CBM processes is to characterize coal on its moisture and gas content. Usually, the moisture and gas content of coal are determined from laboratory analysis. Low-field nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is a relatively new technique used in logging and in the analysis of fluids contained in reservoir rocks. This paper investigates the potential for coal characterization… CONTINUE READING
