Innovative Ways to Expand Hydrocarbons Resource Base by means of Unconventional Sources in the Russian Federation
E.B. Grunis, S.L. Barkov, I.E. Mishina
The article describes different views on the values of oil and gas resources in the world. Shortage of conventional energy increase worldwide attention on unconventional sources, which include heavy oil, natural bitumen, liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons that may be derived from coal, tar sands, shale oil, gas hydrates, biomass, peat, wood, industrial and municipal waste. The article assesses the resource base of reserves difficult to recover, as well as unconventional hydrocarbon resources in the world and the Russian Federation. Conditions of hydrocarbons production from unconventional reservoirs and reserves difficult to recover are analyzed. Promising areas for shale gas and shale oil search are discussed. Countermeasures are proposed to solve problems and innovative approaches to expand the resource base of hydrocarbons by means of unconventional sources.
