1 File CBM ECON RMRl.ppt Coal Bed Methane Product Water Management and Disposal Economics in the Rocky Mountain Region Jim Bauder and Krista Pearson, Montana State University Source: Boysen et al., 2002

2 CBM Produced Water in the Rocky Mountain Region More than 3 billion barrels of produced water in 2000 Wyoming = 1,901,087,161 (63% of total produced water) New Mexico = 593,053,102 Colorado = 250,986,180 Utah = 145,213,852 Montana = 113,365,939 *Based on 2000 Production Data, 42 gallons/bbl

6 CBM Product Water Disposal Costs Conservative disposal costs = $ $0.04/bbl High range disposal costs = $2.00/bbl Injection costs = $0.20/bbl *Estimates of disposal costs are based on a survey conducted by BC Technologies, Ltd (Laramie, Wyoming) of oil and gas leasees in the Powder River, San Jaun, Raton and Greater Green River Basin.
