Underground Coal Gasification Efficiency in Areas of High Faulting Frequency
The purpose of this paper is substantiating of efficiency during application of borehole underground coal gasification technology based on target coal seam geology. Comprehensive methodology that included analytical calculation is implemented in the work. To determine the efficiency of coal seam gasification in faulting areas, an economic calculation method was developed. The obtained conditions of coal seam allow to provide rational order of mine workings. Conclusions regarding the implementation of the offered method are made on the basis of undertaken investigations. The obtained results with sufficient accuracy in practical application will allow consume coal reserves in the faulting zones using environmentally friendly conversion technology to obtain power and chemical generator gas, chemicals and heat.
