The major maceral groups are analogous to kerogen, which is the dispersed organic matter in sedimentary rocks that is insoluble in aqueous alkaline solvents and common organic solvents. 16). Type I organic matter is rich in hydrogen and is highly oil prone. Alginite, which is a liptinite maceral derived from algae, is the signature Type I maceral. Alginite is not a major constituent of North American coal seams but is a very important constituent of many Australian seams, which are proving to be important coalbed methane reservoirs.
First, discontinuities may be present that limit the drainage area of nearby wells. Second, hydraulic fracturing may be ineffective along transmissive fault zones, which can intercept completion fluid. Finally, fault zones can be cemented with calcite and other minerals, which occlude fracture porosity in coal and adjacent strata. 3 Hydrology Water production is the principal mechanism by which coal is depressurized, and so understanding the hydrology of coalbed methane reservoirs and the ways in which coproduced water can be managed is every bit as important as understanding the distribution and producibility of gas in coal.
