The Energen Corporation initiated the TEAM coalbed methane production project in the Black Warrior Basin in 1986. Thirty wells in the Oak Grove Degasification Field were drilled, completed and stimulated in the Mary Lee/Blue Creek coal seams. An agressive technology development plan was implemented which included detailed geologic studies, reservoir characterization, fracture treatment design evaluation and early post-fracture production analysis. The results of these investigations are presented in this paper.
