Coal-seam fire Wikipedia

A coal-seam fire is a burning of an outcrop or underground coal seam.Most coal-seam fires exhibit smoldering combustion, particularly underground coal-seam fires, because of limited atmospheric oxygen availability. Coal-seam fire instances on Earth date back several million years. Due to thermal insulation and the avoidance of rain/snow extinguishment by the crust, underground coal-seam fires

ASTM D7443 Standard Practice for Minimum Geospatial

As used in this practice, underground coal mining extents represent an area where coal removal has occurred within a defined UCMO. This practice applies to pre-SMCRA and post-SMCRA underground coal mining extents. The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety

Underground Coal Gasification: An Overview of Groundwater

Underground coal gasification is the in situ conversion of coal into an energy-rich product gas. It takes place deep underground, using chemical reactions to consume the coal and grow a cavity. Gas wells, drilled into the coal seam, inject reactant air, oxygen, and/or steam to sustain the reactions. Production wells then extract the product gas.

Productivity, Safety, and Regulation in Underground Coal

Underground coal mining is a dangerous industry where the regulatory state may impose tradeoffs between productivity and safety. We recover the marginal tradeoffs using disasters near a mine as shocks that increase future accident costs. We find that in the second year after a disaster, productivity decreases 11% and accident rates decrease 18-80% for mines in the same state, with some

The importance of the technology improvement of underground coal gasification (UCG) is stipulated by the increasing energy demand of the national economy of the country. A new wave of interest in the UCG can be explained by some reasons. The most important of them are the fast-growing prices of oil, natural gas, limitation of their resources, growing scales of the environment damage from the

Underground coal gasification EE Publishers

Underground coal gasification (UCG) is a clean coal technology option being demonstrated by Eskom’s corporate services division (CSD). UCG permits coal to be gasified in situ within the coal seam, via a matrix of wells. The coal is ignited and air is injected underground to sustain a
