Fuling Shale Field's Output Up 6% in 2020

Chinese producer Sinopec produced 6.7bn m3 of gas from its Fuling shale gas field in 2020, up 6% year/year, the company said on January 4. 

At present, the output of the field remains above 20mn m3/day, it said. Fuling, in central southwest China's Sichuan basin, became operational in 2014 and serves as a key source of supply for the Sichuan-East pipeline.  It passed the 30bn m3 cumulative production milestone earlier this year

Sinopec increased its estimate for proven reserves at the field by almost 192bn m3 in October.
