Three major doubts about the hottest shale gas dev

On November 22, the Ministry of land and resources issued the notice on strengthening the management of shale gas resource exploration, exploitation and supervision of tensile testing machines, which can be roughly divided into pendulum tensile testing machines and electronic tensile testing machines (hereinafter referred to as the notice), which clearly stated that China will adhere to the principle of "open market" and take "open market" as the core, Actively and steadily promote the exploration and exploitation of shale gas. This means that the development of shale gas is different from that of oil and natural gas. The latter is monopolized by state-owned enterprises, while the former ushers in a new era of market opening. Recently, the relevant person in charge of the Geological Exploration Department of the Ministry of land and resources answered the hot issues concerning the opening policy of the shale gas market and the market

the person in charge said that in the management of mining rights, the exploration and exploitation registration of oil, natural gas and shale gas are all managed by the Ministry of land and resources at the first level. This is a highly automated and intelligent high molecular new material industrial park. The difference is that the exploration and exploitation authority of oil and natural gas is limited to qualified enterprises approved by the State Council; In the next step, the exploration and exploitation authority of shale gas should study the new situations and problems in the market environment and open to the whole society, that is, all kinds of social investment subjects, including private enterprises and foreign enterprises, can first enter the field of shale gas exploration and exploitation in China and obtain exploration and mining rights

in addition, shale gas development authority in oil and natural gas blocks is also open. According to the investigation and evaluation of shale gas resource potential of the Ministry of land and resources, the recoverable resource potential of shale gas in China is 25 trillion cubic meters. 180 favorable shale gas blocks with an area of 1.11 million square kilometers have been preliminarily selected, of which 77% of the favorable block area and 80% of the resource potential are in the existing oil and gas blocks. Most of these oil and gas blocks are owned by oil enterprises

in response to the above situation, the Ministry of land and resources clearly stated in the notice that it encourages the exploration and exploitation of shale gas in oil and natural gas blocks. The person in charge said that first of all, we encourage oil companies to give priority to the exploration and exploitation of shale gas in their blocks; Secondly, if oil companies do not explore and exploit, they will transfer shale gas exploration rights to other investors without affecting oil and gas exploration; In addition, the Ministry of land and resources will require oil companies to withdraw from the block and reset shale gas exploration rights in accordance with the law for blocks with insufficient investment in oil and natural gas exploration and uncertain prospects but with shale gas resource potential
