This study shows that MSC Technology can appreciably improve the outlook for CBM development in the Powder River Basin, by improving reserves-per-well and reducing environmental impact. The challenge is to capture the lessons learned from successes, treat new wells / reservoirs as unique and to utilize different completion technologies as needed, such as slotted liners, to maximize success.
