ABSTRACT
The article considers the development of shale gas reserves and of a shale gas industry in China. A forecast by U.S. energy industries consultant Balaji Singh that China will move rapidly to develop its large shale gas reserves to create feedstock for its petroleum chemicals industry is examined. Logistical difficulties faces by China in the production of shale gas are considered, particularly the lack of water needed for hydraulic fracturing.
