China is about to enter the era of unconventional natural gas development

wallpapers Tech 2020-10-16
Zhang Dawei, director of the mineral resources and Reserves Assessment Center of the Ministry of land and resources, said at the ECF international shale gas forum 2016 in Shanghai on the 17th that China is about to enter the era of unconventional natural gas development, and the production target of shale gas in the 13th five year plan can be achieved, even conservative. In 2015, China's shale gas production was 4.471 billion cubic meters. According to the shale gas development plan (2016-2020) issued by the National Energy Administration on September 30, China will strive to achieve 30 billion cubic meters of shale gas production in 2020 and 80-100 billion cubic meters in 2030 with the policy support in place and the smooth market development. "According to the current block development progress, China's shale gas production target can be achieved, even conservative." Zhang Dawei introduced that at present, the proven geological reserves of shale gas in China are 544.129 billion cubic meters. There are 54 shale gas mining rights (including additional ones) in China, with a total area of 170000 square kilometers. Among them, the shale gas reserves submitted by Sinopec Fuling jiaoshiba project in 2015 reached 273.8 billion cubic meters. The project is expected to produce 5 billion cubic meters in 2016 and 10 billion cubic meters and 13 billion cubic meters in 2017 and 2020, respectively. In addition, PetroChina Sichuan Changning, Weiyuan, Shaotong and other shale gas projects have submitted 163.6 billion cubic meters of proven shale gas reserves, with an estimated output of over 2.5 billion cubic meters in 2016 and 10 billion cubic meters in 2020. Zhang Dawei believes that there is still great potential for shale gas development in China. According to the latest evaluation results of the Ministry of land and resources in 2015, China's recoverable shale gas resources amount to 21.8 trillion cubic meters, including 13.0 trillion cubic meters of marine facies, 5.1 trillion cubic meters of marine transitional facies, and 3.7 trillion cubic meters of terrestrial facies. Zhang Dawei proposed to build a shale gas special administrative region in China within the administrative area of 450000 square kilometers in Sichuan Basin and its surrounding areas, including Sichuan, Chongqing, Guizhou, Yunnan, Hunan and Hubei. The exploration right area of the whole region is about 340000 square kilometers, the geological resources are 6.5 billion cubic meters, and the recoverable resources are 10 trillion cubic meters. "If the shale gas special zone is built, China's shale gas production will reach 100 billion cubic meters by 2020." Zhang Dawei said. (Liu Xue)
