CCOP–KIGAM Unconventional Oil and Gas Project: National Coordinators Meeting & Workshop (UCM4), Siem Reap, Cambodia


The 4th Meeting or UCM4 was conducted in Siem Reap on 7-8 March 2016 with 20 participants. It was one of the associated meetings of the 66th CCOP Steering Committee that was hosted by Cambodia on 9-10 March 2016, also in Siem Reap. Present at the Meeting were the national coordinators and/or their representatives from Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Lao-PDR, Malaysia, Thailand and Cambodia, the host country. The participating countries presented their Country Report that provides update on the assessment of their shale oil and gas resources, the challenges encountered in using the EIA/ARI assessment methodology, the technical know-how needed and recommended topics of future capacity building sessions. KIGAM also presented the results of the laboratory analysis of all shale samples that was submitted by the member countries during UCM3- Chiang Mai. KIGAM also reported that based on their analysis many of the samples are unclear or may not be a representative source rock of shale basins in terms of sample locations. They recommended that source rock samples should be taken carefully from outcrops and/or drill holes, considering the basin feature and geology. KIGAM also encourages the member countries to submit additional shale samples for analysis.

The Meeting agreed for the participating CCOP countries to continue their basin assessment using the US Energy Information Agency (EIA) / Advance Resources International, Inc (ARI) methodology for World Shale Gas and Shale Oil Resource Assessment (June 2013).

Future Meeting /training sessions in 2016 will be focused on shale basin mapping, volume calculation and use of GIS;  characterisation - sweet spot areas determination; and assessment - resource calculation.  On integrated basin map of ASIA -showing the potential shale oil/gas regions, all participating countries to map geographic boundaries of basins that have potentials of shale gas/oil (onshore areas only), to map potential shale oil/gas formations in the basins and draw a representative cross section of each basin to clarify the potential shale oil/gas strata.  It is recommended for the shale maps to be produced as Shapefile (http:// www.esri.com) for integration into GIS. If Shape file is not possible, a picture of the basin and its shale outline together with the (clear) map coordinates (in PDF) is acceptable.

A field trip was organised by CCOP TS and General Department of Petroleum, Cambodia to shale outcrops of Tonlesap basin in Battambang and vicinity.
