Shale gas well in SW China sees record high output

A well in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality has produced more than 300 million cubic meters of shale gas after 2,231 days of use, a record high number, its developer Sinopec said Friday.It is estimated that 300 million cubic meters of shale gas is equivalent to a year's gas consumption for a city with a population of 4.8 million.The well is located in Fuling, China's largest shale gas field. For now, the daily output of the well remains at 65,000 cubic meters, said the company.As of Nov. 8, Fuling shale gas field had put 421 wells into production and yielded more than 26 billion cubic m

I. Shale GasStandard: National Standard GB/T31483-2015 "Shale gas geological evaluation method", issued by the General Administration for Market Regulation and the Standardization Committee of China in May 2015.Definition: The shale gas is mainly composed of free or adsorption state natural gas in the organic-rich shale interval. The main body is self-generated and self-storing, large-area continuous natural gas accumulation. Under overburden conditions, the shale matrix permeability is generally less than or equal to 0.001 mD. Single well generally has no natural production capacity, requirin

China Is Desperate To Boost Shale Gas Production

Faced with rising natural gas and liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports to meet growing demand, China is trying to raise its domestic gas production, including by setting up incentives for shale gas and coalbed methane production.Back in 2010, imports accounted for just 15 percent of China’s natural gas supply. By 2018, the share of imports in the country’s gas supply surged to nearly half—45 percent—of total supply. As consumption has been vastly outpacing domestic natural gas production, China has been looking in the past two years to raise its own production. Even at a slower pace, China’s na
