China’s largest shale gas field, had seen a record-high output of natural gas this year as of Sunday, said its developer Sinopec.

The field in southwest China’s Chongqing has produced around 6.4 billion cubic meters of natural gas in 2022 to date, up 0.5 percent year on year, said the company.

Over ten production and construction projects are helping increase the daily gas supply to around 20 million cubic meters, according to the company.

The field has also taken various steps to offset the impact of COVID-19 and speed up drilling efficiency, despite the complicated geological conditions of new wells.

As China’s first large-scale shale gas field to enter commercial development in 2014, Fuling has become a clean energy source for more than 70 cities along the Yangtze River Economic Belt in China.
