The discovery of tight-sandstone gas in North America represents an important breakthrough of global continuous gas accumulations (Table 1-6). Currently, commercial production of tight-sandstone gas, CBM, and shale gas has been realized in the United States. In 2009, the production of three such unconventional gas resources was 1890 Â 108 m3, 576 Â 108 m3, and 930 Â 108 m3, respectively (EIA, 2010), which constituted 55% of total gas production that year (Figure 1-10). In North America, the Bakken tight oil has seen significant development.

1 Â 10À3 mm2. Generally, natural productivity is not possible in individual wells or is lower than the lower limit of industrial gas flow; however, industrial gas flow is attainable by taking some economic or technical measures. Tight gas has become the current focus in gas exploration. 0 Â 1012 m3. The reserves and production of tight gas account for one-third of the total gas in China, and the total resources in place are more than 20 Â 1012 m3, showing a great exploration potential. The two factors of widespread tight reservoirs and source rocks with intense hydrocarbon generation capability contribute to the formation of continuous tightsandstone gas.
