Coalbed methane (CBM) has been exploited in the deep area of the coal reservoir (>1000 m). The production of CBM vertical wells is low because of the high in situ stress, large buried depth, and low permeability of the coal reservoir. In this paper, efficient and advanced CBM development technology has been applied in the Libi Block of the Qinshui Basin. According to the characteristics of the coal reservoir in the Libi Block, the coiled tubing fracturing technology has been implemented in four cluster horizontal wells. Staged fracturing of horizontal wells can link more natural fracture networks. It could also expand the pressure drop range and control area of the single well. This fracturing technology has achieved good economic results in the Libi Block, with the maximum production of a single horizontal well being 25313 m³/d and the average single well production having increased by more than 60% from 5000 m³/d to 8000 m³/d. Based on the data regarding the bottom hole pressure, water production, and gas production, the production curves of four wells, namely, Z5P-01L, Z5P-02L, Z5P-03L, and Z5P-04L, were investigated. Furthermore, a production system with slow and stable depressurization was obtained. The bottom hole pressure drops too fast, which results in decreasing permeability and productivity. In this work, a special jet pump and an intelligent remote production control system for the CBM wells were developed; hence, a CBM production technology suitable for the Libi Block was established. The maximum release for the CBM well productivity was obtained, thus providing theoretical and technical support for CBM development with geological and engineering challenges.
