Key coalbed methane reservoir properties can be determined using a logical history matching analysis procedure that incorporates laboratory, geologic and production data. Methane and water production data were history matched using a dual-porosity, two-phase finite difference reservoir simulator modified to account for the storage and flow mechanisms unique to coal. Two field examples demonstrate the results and show the applicability of reservoir modeling to assessing the effectiveness of stimulation and predicting well performance.
