Saudi Arabia to start shale production by year-end10 March 2017
Saudi Aramco plans to produce Saudi Arabia’s first shale gas in the northwest of the country by the end of 2017 to feed a power plant built as part of a phosphate mining complex.
The Jalamid field will be the first shale gas project to start up in Saudi Arabia, but only 5.6 million cubic metres per day (MMcm/d) will be sent to the Wa’ad Al-Shamal complex by 2018.
