EXCERPT OF THE REPORT PRESENTED BY KAMLESH: According to the report prepared by Kamlesh and his team, conventional gas reserves could be accessed 1,500 meters below the earth's surface by vertical drilling, whereas shale gas was accessible 2,000 to 5,000 meters below the earth's surface. Traditionally, vertical drilling was sufficient to access and extract conventional gas reserves out of permeable rocks whereas, shale gas was trapped under low-permeable rocks and required horizontal drilling (hydraulic fracturing i.e. the process of using water for breaking the rock) after vertical drilling..
