Energy of the future

Around the world there are thousands of trillions of cubic feet of gas that could be produced to supplement the world’s energy supplies. However, these particular gas resources are difficult to produce because the gas is held in tight reservoirs where the permeability of the reservoir rocks is low.

Producing tight gas is a challenging operation, yet considering the large quantities available and the long-term producibility of this natural resource, such unconventional gas is regarded as a significant source of energy for the future. Tight gas could help to address the predicted deficit between energy supply and demand in the next 5–20 years.
