Report summary

The shales of the Tarim Basin are thought to be thick and occur over a large area leading to a large resource potential estimate for the entire basin. However depth of the target shales could exceed 4 500 metres. Additionally the basin is remote and dominated by the world s second largest shifting sand desert making it difficult to obtain large volumes of water for drilling and fracturing. Developing the shales will prove to be a costly and challenging endeavour.
