Special Issue Information

Dear  Colleagues,

The coal measure resources are oil and gas generated by coal, carbonaceous shale and dark shale in the coal measure’s strata. They include continuous-type coalbed methane, shale gas, tight resources, in situ conversion hydrocarbon and trap-type coal-bearing resources. Huge in reserves, the resources of the coal measure are significant to the global energy supply. However, the immoderate utilization of the coal measure’s resources also raises severe concerns about increased greenhouse gases and environmental issues. Meeting the carbon neutrality target is delivering unprecedented momentum for CCUS, which is one of the few solutions to tackle the emissions from fossil fuels. Thus, this Special Issue is proposed to discuss the coal measure’s resources and CCUS, to provide some guidance for the green and sustainable development of fossil fuels. The content of this Special Issue will focus on:

  • The geological evaluation of coal measure resources;
  • The development of technology regarding coal measure resources;
  • Carbon emission characteristics and environmental protections during the development of coal measure resources;
  • Key clean coal technologies (CCTs) and the in situ conversion process (ICP) of coal or the like;
  • The advances in the development of coal measure resources, CCUS and enhanced oil recovery (EOR);
  • The sustainable development of coal measure resources in meeting the carbon neutrality

Coal measure gas resources, including coalbed methane (CBM), shale gas, and tight gas are abundant in the Daning–Jixian Block. The complexity of the source–reservoir–cap relationship in the coal measure strata leads to unclear symbiotic characteristics and gas accumulation, which in turn, restrict the exploration and exploitation of the coal measure gas. In this study, the enrichment and accumulation of coal measure gas are discussed and summarized in detail. The results show that there are eight lithofacies and six reservoir combinations in the superposed strata of the coal measures in the study area. Controlled by the tidal flat-lagoon facies, the “sand-mud-coal” type mainly distributes in P1s2 and P1t, showing a good gas indication. Based on the variation of the total hydrocarbon content, key strata, and pressure coefficient of the coal measure gas reservoir, four superposed gas-bearing systems are identified in the vertical direction. According to the relationship between the gas-bearing system and gas reservoir, the enrichment of coal measure gas in the study area can be divided into three modes, including an intra-source enrichment mode, a near-source migration enrichment mode, and a far-source migration enrichment mode. The symbiotic accumulation of a coal measure gas model is further proposed, that is, an “Adjacent to co-source reservoir” type superimposed coalbed methane and shale gas reservoir model, a “Three gas symbiosis” superimposed reservoir model in the local gas-bearing system, and a “Co-source far reservoir” tight sandstone gas reservoir model. Clarifying the symbiotic relationship of coal measure gas reservoirs is beneficial to the exploration and further production of unconventional gas in the study area. Full article
