Joint geological study on shale gas under way in BC

Inpex Corp. has reported the start of a joint geological study for shale gas development in northeastern British Columbia (OGJ Online, Aug. 8, 2012). The study is expected to last a year.

Participants include Japan Oil, Gas & Metals National Corp., Inpex Gas British Columbia Ltd., and Nexen Energy ULC. The companies will focus on the Horn River, Liard, and Cordova areas.

The companies agreed in March to evaluate geological characteristics by analyzing properties of rock samples extracted from shale reservoirs marked for development.
