The first shale gas horizontal well in Henan Province has accumulated gas production of 200,000 cubic meters

On July 1, the reporter learned from the Henan Provincial Geological Bureau that the Zhengdongye 1HF well located in the south of Xiangfu District, Kaifeng City has accumulated a gas production of 200,000 cubic meters, with a maximum of 19,970 cubic meters per day, marking Henan Province’s Significant progress has been made in shale gas exploration.

Henan Yukuang Geological Exploration Investment Co., Ltd. is the only geological exploration enterprise in the province that owns shale gas mining rights and is engaged in shale gas exploration and investment. After nearly ten years of hard work, the company finally discovered abundant shale gas in the Permian strata 3,000 meters underground in the Zhengzhou-Kaifeng area.

Shale gas is mainly composed of methane, which is a new type of clean energy. According to the requirements of the “14th Five-Year Plan” Modern Energy System and Carbon Neutralization Plan for Henan Province, our province will increase the exploration and development of unconventional natural gas resources such as shale gas, and promote the pioneering of shale gas in Zhengzhou and Kaifeng. Construction of exploration and development demonstration projects.

According to the person in charge of the company, Well Zhengdongye 1HF is the first shale gas horizontal well in the sea-land transitional facies in the South China Basin. Model, many works are carried out for the first time in the province, it can be said that there are bottlenecks in the circle and challenges are encountered step by step. The first shale gas horizontal well in our province is tested to produce gas, which is a major progress in shale gas exploration in our province, but there are still many difficulties to be overcome to provide clean gas to thousands of households. The company will continue to seek breakthroughs in key technologies and core equipment, and strive to achieve breakthroughs in production capacity on the basis of pilot tests.
