Gas resources in Russia’s tight sedimentary basins and their future commercial development
Tight gas plays are seen as of one of three key unconventional energy resources reporting progressive expansion, in different parts of the world. According to various estimates, the unconventionals appear nearly comparable today with conventional gas. In the US, tight gas is associated with the greatest share of proven and probable unconventional resources. Russia was also found to have a significant production potential for unconventional gas. Its stronger upstream expectations are mainly led by progressively growing depletion of key conventional gas production areas domestically.
