PetroChina targets 10 bcm coal seam gas from Erdos by 2020

PetroChina aims to produce 10 billion cubic metres of coal seam gas per year from the east part of the Erdos basin by 2020, a senior company official said.

Li Jingming, chief geologist at PetroChina's (0857.HK) (601857.SS) Coalbed Methane Unit, was speaking at an industry conference on Monday.

China has been stepping up efforts to increase domestic gas production and to scour for overseas gas sources.

Last week, Chinese offshore oil specialist CNOOC (0883.HK) and BG Group (BG.L) signed Australia's biggest-ever liquefied natural gas supply deal, paving the way for approval of BG's $8 billion coal-seam gas project.
