The cost of northwestern Canadian shale gas will drop to competitive levels as drilling intensifies from scattered field trials into concentrated commercial development, says the pipeline grid for British Columbia and Alberta.
Canadian natural gas production is capable of growing by 25% as of 2035, and the country’s oil output could soar by 75% over the next quarter-century, but “major uncertainties” cloud the outlook, according to Canada’s National Energy Board (NEB).
TransCanada Corp. is acting swiftly to grab the pipeline action in the next western drilling hot spot, the 130,000-square-kilometer (52,000-square-mile) Montney shale formation in northern British Columbia and Alberta.
China National Offshore Oil Co. (CNOOC), through Canadian subsidiary Nexen Energy, has been awarded a site for its proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal on the northern Pacific coast of British Columbia (BC), the provincial government said Wednesday.
A vast 449 Tcf of natural gas, 14.9 billion bbl of natural gas liquids (NGL) and 1.1 billion bbl of oil await production in just the best known, most accessible western Canadian shale deposit, according to a federal and provincial report on the Montney geological formation.
Another 2.88 Tcf has been added to Canadian hopes for overseas sales of liquefied natural gas (LNG) over the next quarter-century, swelling the industry total to 158.08 Tcf.
Shale production will accelerate growth in demand for natural gas, and eventually revive drilling, by stabilizing supplies and prices for decades to come, Canada’s National Energy Board (NEB) has been told (see Shale Daily, Oct. 22).
Service was restored late Thursday after repair of a rupture on a remote leg of TransCanada Corp.’s Nova natural gas pipeline grid in Alberta, enabling oilsands plants, which are its primary customers, to resume operating after brief interruptions.
