Paper Title:
Dynamic Variation Character of CBM Reservoir Permeability during Depletion of High-Rank Coalbed Methane
  Abstract

China is rich in CBM resources, but so far, some production wells present low production and rapid decline trend. In addition to these objective factors such as low permeability and complexity of geological structure of CBM reservoir, there is still the most important problem during the exploitation techniques that is the lack of understanding to dynamic variation character of CBM reservoir permeability, which leads to the unreasonable work of depletion for coalbed methane.Using P&M model and parameters from 3# coal seam of Shanxi Formation, Permian system in Qinshui basin, the permeability variations of this block (first decline, then ascend, reaching 2.8 times of initial permeability at the end) were analyzed, revealing good depletion prospect of this CBM field, and pointed that the higher Young's modulus is, the more obvious matrix shrinkage is and the higher gas saturation is, the more favor for permeability improvement through sensitivity analysis. Finally, two suggestions were proposed, (1) add the 'permeability variations' to the parameters for CBM block select, which may find the "innate" in the late development of the poor condition of properties easy to improve, develop potential for larger blocks. (2) Adjust and optimize the depletion method (amplitude and frequency of bleeding, pressure reduction) according to the permeability variation characters discussed in this paper
