Research center of Shale Gas Development Technology

Focusing on the evaluation technology for shale gas resources, safe drilling and stimulation technology,we are building a platform for the study of exploration technology, safe and efficient drilling technology, nano-production technology in shale reservoir. We aim to establisha regional and national research center for theexplorationand development of shale gas.


1. Assessment techniquefor the resource and production of shale gasreservior

2. The technology for safe and efficient drilling shale gas

3.The system for increasingthe production ofshale gas

4. Characterization of the microscopic structurein shale gas reservoirs
