【ECF News】Observation: China unconventional gas - this new subsidy is not enough

On June 20, the Ministry of Finance announced the Supplementary Notice on the Interim Measures for the Administration of Special Funds for Renewable Energy Development (hereinafter referred to as the “Notice”), and many new regulations on unconventional natural gas subsidies have been released . For example, the subsidy time limit will be extended to 2023, and the subsidies will be extended from shale gas, coalbed methane to tight gas.Hereafter, several key issues has led to extensive discussions among the industry, such as how to calculate the unconventional natural gas utilization amount, ho

【ECF News】Gas production wells in China's Fuling shale gas block exceeds 400

According to Sinopec Jianghan Oilfield Fuling Shale Gas Company on August 30, three new shale gas wells, Jiaoye 46-5, 46-6, 46-7 HF started producing in Jiaoshiba field of Fuling shale gas. The total number of production wells rose from 399 to 402.The Fuling Shale Gas Company plans to put 98 new wells into production. As of the end of August, the trial production of 61 new wells has been completed. There are multiple wells have been produced with a high-yield industrial gas flow of more than 300,000 m3 per day.

China aims to rev up shale gas drive, wean itself off imports amid U.S. trade row

China aims to slash its growing dependence on gas imports by boosting domestic projects like shale fields as the security of its energy supply comes under the spotlight amid a festering trade war with the United States.The row with Washington has overshadowed China’s economy, likely slowing gas demand growth considerably this year, a new government research report shows. But Beijing is funding new efforts to boost domestic production, particularly from so-called unconventional sources like shale gas, as weaning China off its import reliance takes on new importance.The report, released on Satur

New law gives China’s regions power to tax resources

Chinese legislators have approved a law that will give local governments the authority to tax as many as 164 resources, including fossil fuels, minerals and eventually water, the Ministry of Finance said on Monday.The National People’s Congress, China’s top legislature, approved the resource tax law, which would take effect in September next year, the ministry said.Officials said it would not raise the overall taxes on local companies.Major resources such as crude oil or rare earths would remain subject to a fixed tax rate set by the central government, but local authorities would be able to a

Can China Double Its Gas Output By 2040?

China is set to double its natural gas production by 2040, but challenges in developing shale gas resources have led to a lower production outlook and expectations of more imports in the long term, Wood Mackenzie said on Wednesday. China’s domestic natural gas supply is forecast to double to 325 billion cubic meters (bcm) in 2040 from 149 bcm in 2018, according to Xueke Wang, a consultant at Wood Mackenzie. Yet, this latest forecast for 2040 is 39 bcm lower than WoodMac’s previous outlook, mostly dragged down by lowered forecasts for shale gas and coal bed methane (CBM) production, Wood Macke
