Question
Dear Sir,
What are the important conditions to be considered while injecting coal bed methane produced water.
Thanks
Atul

Answer
Dear Mr.Atul,
Thanks for your question,
For injection purpose there are many parameters to be looked into.
The important parameters to be considered are
Porosity and permeability of the sands needs to be high,
The pore pressure should ideally be subhydrostatic,
and the aquifer cannot be in hydraulic communication with coalbeds
or
aquifers used for irrigation or domestic use.
The injected and water at the zone of injection should have good compatibility.
Thanks
