MCP - methane control and prediction (version 2.0).

MCP was developed to address some of the methane and methane control issues in longwall coal mines in the U.S. and other countries. MCP 2.0 is an update to previous versions 1.2 and 1.3 and contains the following two main software model categories: 1. ancillary models: A. total gas content prediction for coals; B. desorbable gas content prediction for coals; C. coal measure rock mechanical properties prediction. 2. methane prediction models. MCP 2.0 offers two sets of methane prediction models: 1. Models for Specific U.S. Conditions, which directly relate to specific U.S. longwall mining conditions and to the mining operations in specific states, and, 2. Models for Other U.S./International Conditions, which are applicable to "other U.S." conditions and also to international projects. These models have both deterministic and stochastic options to allow better control of design parameters. The application of these modules, separately or in combination, for methane-capture and -control-related problems will help improve safety of mines, provide guidance for effective ventilation practices, and help identify opportunities for capturing and utilizing methane, which is an important energy source and a potent greenhouse gas.
