Bustin and Bustin, 2008). Results indicate that, in basins where geothermal gradient is lower than 20 °C/km, regional uplift results in significant undersaturation early in the unroofing history (Fig. 15). In basins with geothermal gradient higher than 30 °C/km, early uplift can actually decrease adsorption capacity, which favors the maintenance of gas-saturated reservoir conditions. 5 km of overburden has been eroded are predicted to be undersaturated with thermogenic gas in the absence of migration from other areas.
In the Powder River Basin, for example, the permeability of many shallow coalbed methane reservoirs is greater than 3 darcys. 1%. , 1988; Pashin, 2010). It should be noted, however, that local variation of permeability is a major source of reservoir heterogeneity in coal. Accordingly, permeability within a given coal seam commonly varies by more than an order of magnitude at a given depth. , 2005). Geologic structure can have a strong effect on permeability. 11). Here, positive structural curvature helps maintain open cleats that are filled with free gas.
Shear fractures dipping with the fault are called synthetic shears, whereas those dipping opposite the fault are called antithetic shears. Faults can act as reservoir seals or as conduits for cross-formational flow depending on how sealing and transmissive rock types are juxtaposed by the fault, as well as the internal architecture and degree of mineral cementation in the fault zone. Pashin et al. (2004) observed that wells intersecting faults in the Black Warrior Basin tend to produce little water or gas.
