DALLAS, Oct. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Breitling Energy Chairman and CEO, Chris Faulkner is headlining the 4th China International Shale Gas Summit 2015 in Beijing today, discussing how U.S. shale is affecting world prices and development.
China is world's largest energy consumer and fuels about 70 percent of that demand from coal. Chinese energy leaders have noted the impact of hydraulic fracturing on U.S. natural gas production and how the rise of gas-fired power plants quickly reduced carbon emissions in the States. China's energy plan calls for a 3,000 percent increase in natural gas production by 2020 to help facilitate a shift from coal to natural gas. The superpower is also strategizing how it can supply enough oil for its long-term transportation demands.
However, China faces mounting technical challenges to replicate U.S. shale production, including cost of development, difficult geological formations and the availability of fresh water to facilitate fracture stimulation.
Chris Faulkner earned an international reputation speaking on behalf of United States shale development and will present an outlook on what has taken place here and what could be applied in China.
"China faces an uphill battle to replicate what we have done, but I'm impressed with their commitment to increase the number of natural gas power plants to reduce emissions," Faulkner said. "Obviously they are a major player on the international energy stage and as we've seen, their demand for oil has a direct impact on prices, so this will be a very interesting discussion and I'm honored to be one of the first to address this prestigious group of Chinese energy thought leaders."
The Summit concludes tomorrow at the Beijing Doubletree Hotel.
