ARCoSTIM

NEW DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR COMMERCIALISING GAS WITHIN DEEP COAL SEAMS

OVERCOMES 4 CHALLENGES PREVENTING FULL-CYCLE, STANDALONE COMMERCIAL GAS EXTRACTION

1. Routinely drilling long horizontal wellbores within deep, highly stressed coal seams.

2. Significantly lowering wellbore completion cost within hostile wellbore environments.

3. Creating large stimulated reservoirs volumes for high-productivity wellbores.

4. Minimising environmental footprint.

HOLISTIC, 4-STEP / DRILLING / COMPLETE / STIMULATE / PRODUCTION PROCESS

1."One-way/ anti-reverse" horizontal drilling.

2. Drill-string production conduit completion. 

3. Create initial stimulated reservoir (i-SRV) by deliberate wellbore collapse. ("bulking").

4. Create expanding stimulated reservoir volume (e-SRV) by ongoing coal matrix shrinkage during            production. 

No hydraulic fracture stimulation treatment.

No water, other fluids, chemicals or solids injected or produced to surface.
