 Natural gas
 Unconventional
 Found in certain types of shale
 2,000-7,000 feet deep
 Low permeability
 Confined in fractures within the
shale itself
 Reserves higher than Oil
 Enhanced Global Availability
4
How is Shale formed?  Shale is formed from muddy
sediments deposited in seas millions
of years ago
 As these sediments were buried,
they were heated and turned into
rock and the organic matter was
converted into oil or gas
 These rocks are often the source
rocks for conventional oil and gas
fields but have low permeability so
it is difficult to extract oil or gas
from them directly

Organic rich shale at the ground
surface
How is shale gas formed?
6
Source: Geologic Time 1. Which geologic event
took place first and when?
• Shale is sandwiched between two
thick, black fine-grained shale
deposits
• Continued pressure from burial
forces most of the natural gas to
migrate from the organic shales
into sandstone and limestone
forming conventional reservoirs.
• The natural gas remaining in the
shales is termed shale gas.
Shale Gas Formation
 Natural gas in shales has, essentially, formed from the remains of
plants, animals, and microorganisms that lived millions of years ago.
 Though there are different theories on the origins of fossil fuels, the
most widely accepted is that they are formed when organic matter
(such as the remains of a plant or animal) is buried, compressed and
heated in the earth’s crust for long time.
 In the case of natural gas, this is referred to as thermogenic methane
generation.
7
1821 – First US commercial natural gas
well in Fredonia, NY, produces natural
gas from shale;
After 160 years of development and experi
1980s – Department of Energy
spearheads research in micro seismic
and other 3-dimensional mapping
techniques that proved critical to shale
gas recovery;
2000s – natural gas holds
steady in United States with
the highest annual increase in
production of any energy
technology – modern natural
gas boom
When it began?
8
Presence of Shale Gas worldwide
9
 North America is currently the most profitable shale gas producer.
 Worldwide development of shale gas plays are expected to develop, especially in Europe and Asia.
 Shale gas contributes an 11% rise in natural gas in the U.S.
 Pennsylvania Marcellus Shale contains about 500 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
 China is estimated to have the world's largest shale gas reserves.
10
ONGC finds country's first-ever shale gas reserve in West Bengal
 India's biggest energy explorer ONGC has
discovered the country's first shale gas
reserve at Durgapur in Burdwan district
of West Bengal.
 The gas reserve - spread over 12,000
square km in the Durgapur-Ranigunj area
- is the world's third shale gas find.
 According to ONGC estimates, India's
shale gas reserves range between 600
and 2,000 trillion cubic feet.
 "The successful pilot testing of first-ever
shale gas on surface will put India on
shale gas map of the world. It has
opened up new hopes for meeting our
energy needs and encouraged to venture
into many shale sequences"

India’s participation in the Shale Gas industry in
the US
 RIL has made big investments (US$ 3.5 billion) in the Marcellus and Eagle Ford
shales through joint ventures with Chevron, Carrizo, and Pioneer. Marcellus has
been described as the largest discovered unconventional gas field in the US and
one of the largest worldwide, with estimated net recoverable resources of 318
trillion cubic feet (tcf). (In comparison, the resources in RIL’s own D6 fields in the
KG Basin were estimated to hold around 3.4 tcf in November 2012, dropping from
10.3 tcf in December 2006).
 RIL’s revenues from the shale gas business more than doubled to US$ 545 million in
2012 compared to 2011. RIL views its investment as a profitable proposition and
not necessarily at gaining technology and experience to explore for shale gas in
India.
 Oil India Limited (OIL), Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), and GAIL India Limited have
also made investments in shale gas production in the US.
13
• The other interesting contribution to shale gas
development in the US is the export of guar
gum from India, which helps in improving the
viscosity and flow of water in the fracking
process.
• The gum is extracted from guar ki phalli,
grown mainly by farmers in arid lands in
Rajasthan and Haryana.
• Its use in shale gas extraction, its production
has risen enormously, earning almost US$ 5
billion during the period from April 2012 to Jan
2013.

Contribution of Shale Gas in the production of
Natural Gas in US
• Shale gas has become an
increasingly important source of
natural gas in the United States.
• U.S. government's Energy Info.
Administration predicts that by
2035, 46% of the United States'
natural gas supply will come from
shale gas.
15
Supporting Evidence
 Plentiful
 Cleaner than other fossil fuels
 Economy
16
 Low maintenance costs
 Environment friendly
 Speedy creation of Infrastructure
 Most critics support the production of natural gas from Shale.
 Analysts expect shale gas will greatly expand worldwide energy supply.
 Unconventional gas production is expected to rise from 42% in 2007 to 64% in
2010.
 There is enough shale gas to support the U.S. gas needs for 90 years.
 According to a recent report by the IEA2 , the rapid development of
‘unconventional’ natural gas resources, most notably shale gas, could herald
a golden age for gas’ with demand surpassing that for coal by 2030, and by
2035 natural gas could account for 25% of all global energy use.
17
Concerns
 Shale Gas- Earthquake:
 The possible link between fracking for
shale gas and small earthquakes has
triggered considerable concern, two
small earthquakes in April and May 2011
in the Blackpool area (2.3 and 1.5
respectively on the Richter Scale)
18
 Contamination of drinking
water:
 Contamination of drinking water
sources either by chemicals used
in fracking fluids and/or by
methane escape as a result of
the fracking process itself
Pros and Cons of Shale Gas
 Pros: Under our toes, a wealth of gas exists that burns clean and could wean the U.S. off
energy dependence. But getting to it is a bit tricky.
 The Obama administration believes that increased shale gas development will help reduce
greenhouse gas emissions. In 2012, US carbon dioxide emissions dropped to a 20-year low.
Human and public health will both benefit from shale gas displacing coal burning.
 Cons:
 First of all, it's 5,000 feet below ground.
 To get a hold of it requires pumping hydraulic fracturing (fracking) fluids, which could
contain hazardous chemicals, into the ground along with water and sand at high pressures.
 The result is "a super-salty brine, prone to bacterial growth, and potentially contaminated
with heavy metals," the National Geographic wrote in its series on shale gas.
19
Conclusion
 Enough unconventional Reservoir exist in the country.
 Unconventional Reservoirs are required to be evaluated by collection of more
data by initiating Pilot Projects in Shale Gas as earliest as possible.
 Exploration blocks may be awarded for unconventional reservoirs.
 Economically, Projects in Shale Gas looks viable.
 There is a need to undertake more extensive exploration and appraisal
activities to better assess the commercial viability of shale gas

How is Shale formed?  Shale is formed from muddy sediments deposited in seas millions of years ago  As these sediments were buried, they were heated and turned into rock and the organic matter was converted into oil or gas  These rocks are often the source rocks for conventional oil and gas fields but have low permeability so it is difficult to extract oil or gas from them directly 5 Organic rich shale at the ground surface
  • 6. How is shale gas formed? 6 Source: Geologic Time 1. Which geologic event took place first and when? • Shale is sandwiched between two thick, black fine-grained shale deposits • Continued pressure from burial forces most of the natural gas to migrate from the organic shales into sandstone and limestone forming conventional reservoirs. • The natural gas remaining in the shales is termed shale gas.

  • 13. India’s participation in the Shale Gas industry in the US  RIL has made big investments (US$ 3.5 billion) in the Marcellus and Eagle Ford shales through joint ventures with Chevron, Carrizo, and Pioneer. Marcellus has been described as the largest discovered unconventional gas field in the US and one of the largest worldwide, with estimated net recoverable resources of 318 trillion cubic feet (tcf). (In comparison, the resources in RIL’s own D6 fields in the KG Basin were estimated to hold around 3.4 tcf in November 2012, dropping from 10.3 tcf in December 2006).  RIL’s revenues from the shale gas business more than doubled to US$ 545 million in 2012 compared to 2011. RIL views its investment as a profitable proposition and not necessarily at gaining technology and experience to explore for shale gas in India.  Oil India Limited (OIL), Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), and GAIL India Limited have also made investments in shale gas production in the US. 13

  • 17.  Most critics support the production of natural gas from Shale.  Analysts expect shale gas will greatly expand worldwide energy supply.  Unconventional gas production is expected to rise from 42% in 2007 to 64% in 2010.  There is enough shale gas to support the U.S. gas needs for 90 years.  According to a recent report by the IEA2 , the rapid development of ‘unconventional’ natural gas resources, most notably shale gas, could herald a golden age for gas’ with demand surpassing that for coal by 2030, and by 2035 natural gas could account for 25% of all global energy use. 17
  • 18. Concerns  Shale Gas- Earthquake:  The possible link between fracking for shale gas and small earthquakes has triggered considerable concern, two small earthquakes in April and May 2011 in the Blackpool area (2.3 and 1.5 respectively on the Richter Scale) 18  Contamination of drinking water:  Contamination of drinking water sources either by chemicals used in fracking fluids and/or by methane escape as a result of the fracking process itself
  • 19. Pros and Cons of Shale Gas  Pros: Under our toes, a wealth of gas exists that burns clean and could wean the U.S. off energy dependence. But getting to it is a bit tricky.  The Obama administration believes that increased shale gas development will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In 2012, US carbon dioxide emissions dropped to a 20-year low. Human and public health will both benefit from shale gas displacing coal burning.  Cons:  First of all, it's 5,000 feet below ground.  To get a hold of it requires pumping hydraulic fracturing (fracking) fluids, which could contain hazardous chemicals, into the ground along with water and sand at high pressures.  The result is "a super-salty brine, prone to bacterial growth, and potentially contaminated with heavy metals," the National Geographic wrote in its series on shale gas. 19
  • 20. Conclusion  Enough unconventional Reservoir exist in the country.  Unconventional Reservoirs are required to be evaluated by collection of more data by initiating Pilot Projects in Shale Gas as earliest as possible.  Exploration blocks may be awarded for unconventional reservoirs.  Economically, Projects in Shale Gas looks viable.  There is a need to undertake more extensive exploration and appraisal activities to better assess the commercial viability of shale gas 20
