Abstract The geophysical logging technology has been employed in connection with field and laboratory tests for coal reservoir evaluation in Huainan and Huaibei coalfields, China. The relationships between coalbed gas content of coal reservoir and characteristics of geophysical logs have been investigated by means of the combined analyses of experimental and geophysical logging data. Coalbed gas content of drilling core samples from coal seams was determined experimentally. The results, together with the log data obtained from geophysical logging technology, have been analyzed by using geological statistics, permitting correlation of the coalbed gas content to the log responses. The correlation developed in this study provides better understanding of the coal reservoir for coalbed methane exploration in given coalfields by an improved prediction of the coalbed gas content.
