In March, 2003, the U.S. Geological Survey, the Louisiana
Geological Survey, and EnerVest Management Partners Ltd.,
participated in a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement
(CRADA) to drill and core the Fairbanks Real Estate No. 359 (FRE
No. 359) coalbed methane test well in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana.
This effort was in support of ongoing U.S. Geological Survey
investigations into the coal gas potential of the Gulf Coastal
Plain. To determine possible relationships between coalbed gas
content and coal composition, maceral modes were determined for 17
subsurface coal and carbonaceous shale samples cored and desorbed
from the Paleocene-Eocene Wilcox Group. Similar determinations of
maceral mode were made on cuttings collected from 5 non-cored coaly
intervals in the overlying Eocene Sparta Sand.
