China shale oil reserves

So far, Chinese NOCs have identified over 50 billion barrels of shale oil resources and 10 billion barrels of oil-initially-in-place (OIIP) in the major conventional oil-producing basins. China’s shale gas industry has moved at a faster clip, going from 120 mmcfd in 2014 to 1450 mmcfd in 2019. The discovery of big, exploitable reserves inside the shale formations of southwestern China seemed to come at the perfect time.

China has massive unconventional natural gas resources. Technically recoverable gas reserves are said to be 36 trillion cubic meters, making it the world’s largest reserve pool according to EIA, and nearly 50% larger than the U.S.’s reserves. In the country’s most recent 5-year plan it laid out a goal of 6.5 billion cubic meters of production by 2015, a steep increase from the current

The discovery of big, exploitable reserves inside the shale formations of southwestern China seemed to come at the perfect time. Officials in Beijing soon began churning out ambitious goals for Sinopec is hoping Shell’s expertise in shale oil exploration could help the Chinese state major turn around its fortunes at Shengli oilfield as the reserves at the giant conventional oilfield China holds the world’s largest shale gas reserves, with 68 per cent more technologically recoverable than the US, according to the US Energy Information Administration. But efforts to exploit these have so far been disappointing. Chief among the problems have been the twisted geology of the Chinese shale beds, America’s oil shale reserves are enormous, totaling at least 1.5 trillion barrels of oil. reserves of Saudi Arabia! And yet, no one is producing commercial quantities of oil from these vast deposits. All that oil is still sitting right where God left it, buried under the vast landscapes of Colorado and Wyoming. With 300,878 million barrels of proven reserves, Venezuela has the largest amount of proven oil reserves in the world. The country's oil is a relatively new discovery. Previously, Saudi Arabia had always held the number one position. The oil sand deposits in Venezuela are similar to those in Canada.
