Technologies to Tap Unconventional Gas Supplies
Date:17 Jun 2013
With global energy demand increasing around 35 percent from 2010 to 2040, ExxonMobil foresees global gas demand rising by 65 percent through 2040 and will have overtaken coal as the second-largest energy source, after oil.
Unconventional resources found in shale and other tight rock formations were once considered uneconomic to produce. Today, technology is helping unlock these resources in North America, with growing opportunities around the world.
Dr. K. S. Cheung will share his knowledge of the two technologies– horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing – which have been used for decades to economically access and produce natural gas and oil found in shale and tight rock. These technologies have unlocked vast new supplies of natural gas and oil, which otherwise would not have been commercially viable.
