Shale Gas Technology Partners
Marcellus Shale Deposits in the states of
Pennsylvania and nearby West Virginia, Ohio, and
New York are among the largest in the USA and
The Marcellus Shale
area produced 3.1 Trillion cubic feet of gas in
2013 which is a 3,000% growth since 2008. This
is being accomplished due to improved efficiency
from Advanced Drilling Techniques, and better
equipment and practices. The production is
increasing while the rig count is decreasing. The average
lateral length of a Horizontal well is now 6,000
feet and is drilled in 20 days.
Drillers operating in the Marcellus shale basin
set a production record in July 2014, with wells
collectively yielding more than 15 billion cubic
feet of natural gas per day.
Over 7,000 wells have been successfully drilled
to date in Pennsylvania
Shale Natural Gas production has experienced
tremendous growth and is now producing 20% of
the USA domestic gas supply. Pittsburgh is now
becoming the Energy Capital of the USA with all
major Energy and Exploration/Drilling Companies
having an office in the newly developed
facilities are being built near Pa to convert
the Marcellus Shale Natural Gas to LNG for
export to Europe and Asia.
Dutch Shell of
the Netherlands is proposing to build a
world-class multi-billion USD "Cracker" facility
near Pittsburgh, Pa. The plant would convert
ethane found in the Marcellus Shale Natural Gas
into ethylene which would then be produced into
higher-value chemicals for everyday products.
The State Of Pennsylvania is a
leader in the Environmental Protection Laws that
protect the Environment and Community from the
problems that can be created from the Drilling
and Fracturing process.
Pennsylvania has a long history since the first
USA Oil Well was drilled in Titusville, Pa. In
and especially the State Of Pennsylvania has

Shale Gas Exploration and Development. These

of low cost LNG to the world.
utilizing its Shale Gas Technology Partners, can
provide the Advanced Technologies from these
companies to assist China in its drilling
efforts and also supply LNG to China.
USA TO BE ONE OF THE WORLD’S LEADING LNG
Pennsylvania USA is considered the birthplace of
the energy Industry. People began mining coal
here in 1760. A century later they were the
first to refine petroleum and the first to drill
commercial oil and natural gas wells.
chapter in that long and proud history began in
2004 with the tapping of natural gas in the
Pittsburgh is now the New Center of
American Energy. The Southpointe energy
complex is home to all of the major gas drilling
The USA has a
very large amount of natural gas with projected
recoverable reserves of 3,374 Trillion cu ft.
and is the World’s largest gas producer. The
richest supply is in the Marcellus/Utica Shale
in the Western PA/Appalacia area of the USA. It
is currently producing almost one half of the
USA natural gas production and is the lowest
cost natural gas supplier in the USA.
advantage of this natural gas, the USA is
building LNG export terminals and soon will be
one of the largest exporters of LNG in the World
with projected capacity of approximately 85 mtpa
by 2025. By 2035 over 50% of the World’s added
LNG capacity is to come from the USA. A majority
of these LNG export terminals are being built in
the lower USA. Other terminals are planned for
Alaska. The 2018/2019 status of these LNG export
terminals is shown below.

widening of the Panama Canal, Supertankers can
carry over 200,000 cbm of LNG. Also, LNG can be
transported in ISO Containers for easy port
Soon, China will
become the largest importer of LNG in the World.
Therefore, a strategic relationship between the
USA and China for LNG will be a win-win for both

Beijing, has been assisting Chinese companies in
buying LNG and natural gas assets in the USA.
ZTI, with over 25 years of working experience in
China and over 45 years in the USA, is committed
to helping you, either a USA energy company or
Chinese energy buyer, find a low cost and
practical solution for your energy needs.
