Directive 062: Coalbed Methane Control Well Requirements and Related Matters

Purpose of this Directive

This directive details requirements and issues specific to the control well process and supersedes any previous AER publication on coalbed methane control well requirements.

A control well is established for the purpose of collecting pressure, productivity, and gas content information to allow for an understanding of gas resources in coals.

Note: For specific geological zones within a defined area, the AER may adapt subsurface directive requirements through a subsurface order to better suit the resource development practices being used.
