We invite U.S. suppliers of services, equipment, and solutions in natural gas midstream infrastructure and shale gas production markets to participate in this opportunity to network and engage with a select Chinese audience and prospective buyers hand-picked by the National Energy Administration (NEA) of China.

Introduce your products, services, and experience to Chinese commercial entities and government agencies that are directly involved in developing the growing natural gas market in China. Key topics anticipated at the workshop include: best commercial practices for E&P cost management and for addressing impact of low crude prices; advanced hydraulic fracturing technologies and processes and shale development case studies; midstream and infrastructure (including pipeline construction and maintenance, regulatory frameworks, and small-scale LNG applications); and environmental regulation.

The workshop will also feature a field visit to Sinopec's Fuling field, the largest shale gas field in China and one of the largest outside the U.S. The field is owned and operated by Sinopec (China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation), which by 2016 became the second largest oil and gas company in the world in terms of revenue. By the end of 2015 Fuling had an annual production capacity of 176.6 billion cubic feet (Bcf) and a total proved reserve of over 13419 Bcf.

Sponsored by the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) in cooperation with China’s NEA, and with support from U.S. Department of Energy, Department of Commerce, and Department of State, this 1.5-day workshop is the third of USTDA’s US-China Shale Gas Training Program.

This workshop is organized by Gas Technology Institute for USTDA.
