China has the largest shale gas resources in the world, according to a recent EIA assessment. I am sure that the central government is looking into developing this huge resources in stages to combat the sever pollution problems in its major cities.

China’s shale gas resources are estimated at 1,115 TCF based on U.S. EIA data. According to OJG, China’s proven natural gas reserves are 107 TCF as of 1/2012.

The central government is aiming at increasing the share of natural gas to 10% of total energy consumption in 2020. By contrast, only 4% of total energy use came from natural gas in 2009.

We just came back from Shanghai and the skies were surprisingly clear in mid-September, 2013.

A change in the right direction.
