J. M. Huber Adopts GST-WellDog Services for Powder River Basin Coalbed Methane Development

Significant Economic and Time-Value Benefit Realized

LARAMIE, WY--(Marketwire - February 19, 2009) - GST-WellDog announced today that its services have been implemented by J. M. Huber Corp. as a standard coalbed methane (CBM) reservoir evaluation tool in the Powder River basin of Wyoming.

"WellDog's technical services have become a significant component of our CBM reservoir analysis in the Powder River basin," J. M. Huber said in a company statement.

After six years of dramatic growth, CBM drilling in the Powder River basin has slowed substantially in the last two years. Faced with more complex geology and longer dewatering times in new areas, as well as increased water and wildlife management regulations, many operators are turning to GST-WellDog for help in focusing their development efforts on economic CBM targets.

"As we move away from our core producing assets into areas where lengthy dewatering times are expected, WellDog services provide a fast, accurate and relatively cost-effective means of capturing data on gas saturation, critical desorption pressure and gas content," J. M. Huber stated. "Integration of these and other data provides Huber Energy with a reliable method of economically evaluating our CBM assets."


One of the largest family-owned companies in America, J. M. Huber is built upon a tradition of strong customer relationships, high ethical standards and technology leadership. Huber's divisions include one of the larger privately owned energy companies in North America, which has been active in oil and gas exploration, development and production since 1919.

Gas Sensing Technology Corp. (GST-WellDog) is a privately held company that uses innovative technologies to evaluate in situ the geochemistry and geophysics of unconventional hydrocarbon reservoirs, resulting in increased gas production as well as reduced costs and environmental impact for clients. Ten years ago, the principals of GST-WellDog began using Raman spectroscopy to create a tool capable of measuring gas content in coalbed reservoirs. Along the way, they pioneered advances in spectrometer miniaturization, harsh environment sensing, coalbed reservoir simulation, and coalbed reservoir geochemistry. Recently, the company has adapted the platform GST-WellDog technology to address key challenges in shale gas and carbon sequestration. More information is available on the web at
