At the Energy Studies Institute (ESI) we have recently completed a study examining the outlook for unconventional gas production in East Asia, focusing on shale gas and coal-bed methane in China, Indonesia and Vietnam. We paid particular attention to the ‘above ground’ factors which may support or constrain production.
Our findings are summarized in four ESI Policy Briefs:
China Shale Gas: Can the Pace Be Sustained? ESI Policy Brief, No. 5, 05 January 2015.
China Coalbed Methane: Slow Start and Still Work in Progress ESI Policy Brief, No. 4, 05 December 2014
Unconventional Gas Development in Vietnam: Early Days in the Hanoi Trough, ESI Policy Brief, No. 2, 10 October 2014
Indonesia Coalbed Methane: Bountiful Promise Held Up By Institutional Paralysis, ESI Policy Brief, No. 1, 1 September 2014
