Fuling Shale Gas Field

  • Yongsheng MaEmail author


The Fuling shale gas field is located in the south of the Fuling District in Chongqing. The Jiaoshiba Block of the Fuling shale gas field is located in the southern part of the Fuling Block in the southeastern Sichuan Basin. The administrative division is affiliated to Jiaoshiba Town, Fuling District, and Chongqing City. The registered work area extends over nine counties: Nanchuan, Wulong, Fuling, Fengdu, Changshou, Dianjiang, Zhongxian, Liangping, and Wanxian.
