China's largest shale gas field sees stable output

February 26, 2020


Abstract : Fuling, China's largest shale gas field, generated 912 million cubic meters of shale gas this year as of Tuesday, which remains stable compared with the same period last year, said its developer Sinopec.

CHONGQING, Feb. 26 (Xinhua) -- Fuling, China's largest shale gas field, generated 912 million cubic meters of shale gas this year as of Tuesday, which remains stable compared with the same period last year, said its developer Sinopec.

The volume of gas sold is 875 million cubic meters, also remaining flat year-on-year, the company said.

The company is working with the local government in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality on plans to resume work and ensure the safety of its employees.

The Fuling shale gas field had produced a total of more than 28 billion cubic meters. It is estimated that 300 million cubic meters of shale gas are equivalent to a year's gas consumption for a city with a population of 4.8 million.

China has made breakthroughs in shale gas exploration both in capacity and drilling techniques, making it one of the top shale gas suppliers in the world.

The accumulated proven geological reserves of shale gas in China have exceeded 1 trillion cubic meters as of the end of April 2018, according to the China Mineral Resource Report 2018.
