pressibility factor, Gf is the original-free-gas-in-place and Gp is the Combining Equations (6A) and (7A) together results in

Equation (1A) is rearranged to: − qS gi pi Z

The chain rule can be applied to the right side of Equation (3A) as:

Also, remembering that cg = − , and then multiplying ( − q)

Substitute Equation (4A) into (3A): t dt

Also, pseudotime is defined as ta = ∫ , which gives,

Equation (1A) can be rearranged as = . ∂p

Depending on what kinds of assumptions are used for reservoir

type, the previously described equation changes to match the reser-

Therefore, Equation (5A) becomes voir. The most general form of the total compressibility equation is:

∂cwip ∂cep ∂cd

ct = cg S gi − cwip − cep − cd − − −

∂p ∂p ∂p

∂cd

For CBM reservoirs, cg ( − cd ) − can be further simplified to:

∂p

∂cd ρB BgVL pL .

cg ( − cd ) − =

∂p φ ( pL + p )2

of the CBM terms on initial pressure. It is defined as the sorption

compressibility, cs(13).

This changes the form of the total compressibility equation to

the following:

∂cwip ∂cep

ct = cg S gi − cwip − cep − − + cs .
