Index / Gas (Tight) Sands / Development Technology

Low-permeability sands hold the largest financial promise of all the usual suspects in the unconventional gas lineup. Industry studies rank it at almost 70 percent of unconventional U.S. gas production and 20 percent of total domestic production.

With advances in technology and the new strategic application of existing technology, tight sands plays are driving exploration and drilling activity in several basins. And it could not have come at a better time. With the U.S. Energy Information Administration projecting natural gas demand to incrementally grow by 40 percent over the next ... More →

Index / Gas (Tight) Sands / Development Technology

March, 2006

In 2005 the U.S. was dealt a solid blow from two hurricanes, causing natural gas production from the Gulf of Mexico to be temporarily knocked off line. Some production is still not back to pre-storm levels. This test of supply reliability reminded us all that diversity of gas supply is important. But onshore, producers are now able to increase production from a diverse number of basins with tight-gas reservoirs, thanks to better frac technology and regulators who are open to increased well density (downspacing) in certain plays. Tight-gas sands and shales in the U.S. may... More →
