ABSTRACT

Enhanced Coalbed Methane Simulator for coal-bearing formation ECOMERS(CBF)-
UT (Enhanced Coalbed Methane Recovery Simulator for Coal-Bearing Formation,
University of Tokyo) was developed. This simulator can calculate the enhanced coalbed
methane production from coal seams and CO2 storage in rocks, which compose the
coal-bearing formation such as sandstones and shales. This paper reports the structure of
the simulator and the calculation results in comparison with other similar simulators.

Keywords: coalbed methane, enhanced recovery, coal-bearing formation, geological
storage, CO2
