Sinopec produces record shale gas at Fuling in 2022
Sinopec’s Fuling shale gas field in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality produced record volumes of shale gas last year, the state-owned Xinhua news agency reported on January 1.
The output from the field reached 7.2bn m3 in 2022, up 0.5% year/year. More than 650 old wells in Fuling contributed about 6.5bn m3 of production.
The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.
Fuling became operational in 2014 and serves as a key source of supply for the Sichuan-East pipeline. Sinopec recently added 104.9bn m3 of proven reserves, bringing the field’s total proven reserves to nearly 900bn m3, accounting for 34% of China's total proven reserves of shale gas.
Sinopec last year said it plans to produce 1,256.7bn ft3 or 35.59bn m3 of natural gas in 2022, up 4.8% yr/yr.
