Usgs assessment: Potential Shale Gas Resources of the Bombay, Cauvery, and Krishna–Godavari Province  

Resource Summary
The results of the USGS assessment of potential shale gas resources in the Bombay, Cauvery, and Krishna–Godavari Provinces of India are listed in table 2. In summary, the estimated mean volumes of technically recoverable petroleum resources are as follows: (1) for the Cambay Shale Gas South Assessment Unit (AU) of the Bombay Province—924 billion cubic feet of gas (BCFG; range, 383 to 1,966 BCFG) and 31 million barrels of natural gas liquids (MMBNGL; range, 12 to 69 MMBNGL); (2) for the Sattapadi-Andimadam Shale Gas AU in the Cauvery Province—1,123 BCFG (range, 444 to 2,660 BCFG) and 39 MMBNGL (range, 14 to 95 MMBNGL); and (3) for the Raghavapuram Shale Gas AU of the Krishna–Godavari Province—4,080 BCFG (range, 1,406 to 9,133 BCFG) and 90 MMBNGL (range, 28 to 207 MMBNGL). The ranges of resource estimates for shale gas reflect the considerable geologic uncertainty in these assessment units.
