Saudi Arabia to drill shale gas wells
- Saudi Arabia: Tuesday, March 19 - 2013 at 07:34
Saudi oil minister Ali Al-Naimi has said the kingdom plans to drill around seven test wells for shale gas this year, as the country seeks to develop its natural gas resources to meet rising domestic energy demand, Bloomberg has reported. "We have rough estimates of over 600 trillion cubic feet of unconventional and shale gas, so the potential is very huge and we plan to exploit it," Al-Naimi said at a conference in Hong Kong. Saudi Aramco is searching for shale gas in the northwest of the country and exploring for unconventional resources such as sour gas in the oil-rich eastern region and in the Empty Quarter deserts, senior vice president of upstream, Amin Nasser, told a conference on March 10 in Manama.
