Shale Gas Exploration in India - Potential, Challenges and Opportunities

  1. 1. Shale Gas Exploration in India - Potential, Challenges and Opportunities February 2013 InfralineEnergy Publications Dr. V. K. Rao
  2. 2. Shale gas: A game changer that India should turn to Shale Gas is the innovation of the decade and Game changer of the energy source. In India, thick shale deposits are found in many potential basins, but not much efforts have been made till now to explore the resources. India should actively endeavor to accelerate shale Gas exploration to bridge the widening gap in energy sector. Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas drafts new policy on shale gas exploration & Exploitation The Draft policy document envisages seismic changes in fiscal and contractual regime to incentivize technologically advanced explorers to invest in Indian Shale Gas exploratory ventures. Shale gas is seen as the new hope for fuelling India’s burgeoning appetite for hydrocarbons. Policy on Shale Gas on the anvil: Veerappa Moily Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas, Government of India has said his ministry is working on a "positive and forward-looking" shale gas policy that would be placed before the Union cabinet shortly. Latest Development in Indian Shale Gas Scenario Shale gas exploration and development is a buzz word these days and many countries in the world are now fast tracking the success story of USA to accelerate their Shale Gas exploration. The Government of India, Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas has already embarked to venture into Shale Gas Exploration in our country. A number of MOUs have been signed for assessing our Indian Shale gas potential and pilot projects have been undertaken to drill shale gas wells. A draft shale gas policy has been circulated by the Ministry to draw views and opinions from global and domestic stake holders. The Draft policy is in the process of finalization. The Ministry is contemplating to offer the bid round on Shale gas blocks by Mid-2013 or so. In this drive towards shale gas, it is of interest to investigate how in future could shale gas reserves play a role in facilitating Indian energy markets. Shale Gas Exploration in India: Potential, Challenges and Opportunities
  3. 3. Shale gas exploration in India is in nascent stages. Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd. (ONGC) has been contemporaneous in taking an initiative to explore shale gas in different sedimentary basins of the country. Preliminary data and studies indicate that many shale sequences in well explored basins could be promising such as Gondwana Basin, Cambay, Krishna- Godavari, Cauvery, Assam- Arakan, Rajasthan, Vindhyan and Bengal Basins. In this context, InfralineEnergy is coming out with a Report on: “Shale Gas Exploration in India: Potential, Challenges and Opportunities ” The Shale gas bidding round is six to eight months away as per Government utterances in various forum. This report will serve as a quick reference guide to Indian scenario for decision makers, consulting agencies and all other stake holders. This report is a comprehensive study on the shale gas scenario in India. What the possibilities are? Where are they? What is the science and technology behind these developments? It answers all of these.
