Shell's China gas output up 25% in 2013

Mar 14, 2014 12:00 AM

Shell's gas production in China in 2013 stood at 164,000 mm cf/d, up 25.2% from the output recorded in 2012, Platts reported citing company’s annual report.

Output was, however, still lower than in previous years -- 174,000 mm cf/d in 2011 and 253,000 mm cf/d in 2010.

All of Shell's current gas production comes from the Changbei tight gas onshore field in the northern Shaanxi province.

Shell has an operating interest of 49%, while state-owned China National Petroleum Corp. (CNPC) owns the remaining 51%. The field started commercial production in March 2007 and has an annual production capacity of 3.3 billion cubic meters (319,151 mm cf/d).

Last year Shell said it was embarking on the second phase of development and this is expected to increase output from as early as the end of this year, said Platts.
