【ECF News】Sichuan Earthquake Administration: the Sichuan earthquake was not caused by shale gas fracturing

At 22:55 on June 17th, a magnitude 6.0 earthquake occurred in Changning County, Yibin City, Sichuan Province. Du Fang, director of the Sichuan Earthquake Prediction Research Center of the Sichuan Earthquake Administration, told the reporter that the Changning earthquake was a natural earthquake with no subject to human intervention.Du Fang said that the southern Sichuan belongs to the combination of the South China block and the Qinghai-Tibet block in mainland China. The Yibin area is located in the relatively stable South China block. There is no large-scale structure, mainly small structures

Study shows shale gas production will not significantly affect China's local water supply

A recent research conducted by Key Laboratory for Power machinery and Engineering of M. O. E., Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Energy Systems Division, Argonne National Laboratory indicate that although a large amount of water will be demand for shale gas production, it will not affect the local water supply significantly.In the "Impact of shale gas development on regional water resources in China from water footprint assessment view" research, key facts regarding water intensity and water use in China's shale gas developments:•WI of shale gas is in the range of 0.3–9.9 kg per m3shale gas pr

In Depth: Earthquakes Are the Latest Setback to China’s Fracking Ambitions

After a series of earthquakes shook Rong county in western China on Feb. 24 and Feb. 25, the Sichuan Earthquake Administration moved quickly to say there was no connection with fracking activity in the region.The earthquakes killed two people and injured 12, with around 13,000 people reported to have been affected more broadly. Many locals ignored the province’s earthquake monitoring body and continued to blame the two state-owned giants drilling in Sichuan, China Petroleum & Chemical Corp. (Sinopec) and China National Petroleum Corp. (CNPC).Videos went viral on social media of protesters marc

China Experiences a Fracking Boom, and All the Problems That Go With It

The first earthquake struck this small farming village in Sichuan Province before dawn on Feb. 24. There were two more the next day.Sichuan is naturally prone to earthquakes, including a major one in 2008 that killed nearly 70,000 people, but to the rattled villagers of Gaoshan, the cause of these tremors was human-made.“The drilling,” Yu Zhenghua said as she tearfully surveyed her damaged home, still officially uninhabitable five days later.The drilling Ms. Yu referred to was hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. The technology, which has revolutionized the production of natural gas and oil in t

Abstract: Feasibility evaluation of the treatment and recycling of shale gas produced water: A case study of the first shale gas field in the Eastern Sichuan Basin, China

A cost-effective shale gas produced water (PW) treatment plant is an essential facility for safe wastewater management in the shale gas field in the Eastern Sichuan Basin, which is the first commercial shale gas field in China. However, knowledge on the PW characteristic and disposal features from this developing shale gas field is limited. This study evaluated the feasibility of pollutant removal from PW in the Eastern Sichuan Basin by a sequential physicochemical process through laboratory and on-site pilot-scale experiments. Results indicated that the CODCr, ammonia nitrogen, total nitrogen

Prospects for shale gas production in China: Implications for water demand-4-3

2.2. Method for evaluation of total water demand at Fuling fieldAccording to the Sinopec shale-gas development plan for Fuling, only 200 km2 will be developed through 2017 [42], compared with the total size of the field of 4000 km2 according to An and Zhu [43]. The water demand for a fully developed Fuling play can be estimated using the method introduced by Nicot and Scanlon to project use of water for shale-gas production in Texas [16]. The fracking water use (WU) for a shale-gas field is estimated by dividing the domain of the entire field (D) by the average lateral spacing between horizont

Prospects for shale gas production in China: Implications for water demand-4-2

2. Data and methodsThe quantity of water consumed by shale-gas drilling and production varies with geological, technological, and economic factors. Instead of estimating water use on a well-by-well basis, we employ the metric of water intensity, the volume of water used per unit lateral bore length (m3/m). The data used to estimate the water intensity of China's shale-gas development are compiled using a combination of sources from the U.S. and China. For the U.S., we rely on well completion reports from Pennsylvania [30], West Virginia [31], and Texas [32], and the FracFocus Chemical Disclosu

What Caused China’s Squeeze on Natural Gas?

Air quality has improved significantly in Beijing this year but an overzealous program to ban coal heating and switch to gas ran into trouble earlier in December.

Shale resources hold answer to China’s LNG supply

China has shown its determination to tackle pollution by shifting from coal to natural gas.

China Takes Major Step To Cut Pollution

Apart from the emission trading scheme, China has been aggressively pushing for a coal-to-gas switch at millions of households in northern China, which has created natural gas shortages as winter approaches.

How A Free Market For Shale In China Could End Its Escalating Air Pollution Crisis

If China could switch from coal to natural gas on a massive scale (as the United States has done), that would reduce air pollution in China by a factor of about 400.

China’s Natural Gas Consumption Soars

Even though projections suggest that domestic natural gas production will triple by 2040, (courtesy of the largest shale gas reserves in the world), around a third of its needs are met—and will continue to be—by pipeline flows and LNG imports.

Growing opportunity for China/US collaboration on reducing oil & gas methane emissions

There is little doubt cleaner energy will play a huge role in China’s ongoing development. It is equally certain that China’s energy choices will have enormous effect on energy systems worldwide.
