For Reference Only At Bureau Libraries :130 pages
This report presents criteria that have been developed to determine the optimum size of oil and gas well blocks. The criteria lead to the formation of well barrier pillars that are, of themselves, inherently stable and take account of variable mine roof and floor conditions. The criteria ensure that strains transmitted to well casings are within tolerable limits of specifications. The criteria cater for well barrier pillars in multiseam mining situations and where previous mining has taken place, maintains flexibility in being adaptable to local mine design situations.
