Coalbed Methane Produced Water In The Western Us

And associated methane in the Raton Basin derive from the late Cretaceous Vermejo and Raton formations, which overlie the Trinidad Sandstone, a basinwide marine sandstone (Figure 2.6). The Vermejo Formation was deposited as a collection of channel, lagoon, coastal swamp and delta plain deposits and the Raton Formation was deposited on a continental alluvial plain as a collection of channel, overbank, and swamp deposits. Numerous thin coalbeds in the Vermejo and Raton formations cannot be...

CBM produced water in the Raton-New Mexico, San Juan, Piceance, and Uinta Basins is almost exclusively reinjected into deep, geologic formations, as a means of disposal (Table 4.1). This approach is used in these basins because of the characteristically high FIGURE Proportional representation of CBM produced water management strategies in the Wyoming and Montana portions of the Powder River Basin. The total amount of water produced in the Wyoming Powder River Basin from CBM extraction in 2008...
