Field trials of nitrogen injection into UIS directional boreholes to enhance gas drainage in low permeable seams

Grant


Scheme


  • Grant

Abstract


  • This project aims to conduct field trials using underground inseam (UIS) directional boreholes to demonstrate the possibility of nitrogen flushing as a solution to future hard-to-drain or low permeable seams to accelerate gas drainage rate to meet statutory threshold values.
