About this book

This book addresses unconventional hydrocarbon resources in India and the prospects for their exploitation. Each chapter focuses on a particular unconventional resource, including gas hydrates, coal bed methane and shale, while the book as a whole takes into account the government’s projections concerning these resources.

The book provides readers with essential information on the nation’s energy requirements, methods of exploiting its available unconventional resources, and their contribution to meeting India’s energy requirements. It also addresses the various geological conditions that are necessary for the exploration of these resources, and enables readers to understand the challenges that need to be overcome.

Its logical, clearly structured chapters make the book an ideal starting point for readers interested in unconventional energy resources. It will especially benefit undergraduate and graduate students in the field of Energy Engineering, as well as academic researchers and industry professionals seeking an overview of the status quo of unconventional hydrocarbon resources in India.


About the authors

Dr Shivanjali Sharma completed her PhD at the Indian School of Mines (ISM), Dhanbad in 2015. Her current research interests are in flow assurance and designing drilling fluids for both conventional and unconventional reservoirs. In addition to teaching on e.g. Production Operations, Enhanced Oil Recovery, Reservoir Engineering, and Drilling Technology at both the graduate and postgraduate level, she has authored numerous research papers in national and international journals, and is also a reviewer for a reputed journal published by Elsevier. Dr Sharma is presently working on a major research project on “Development of Polyionic Liquid Based Silicate Muds for Wellbore Stability in Shale Reservoirs”, funded by DST India.  

Dr Amit Saxena completed his PhD at the Indian School of Mines (ISM), Dhanbad in 2015. His current research interests include the use of foam in enhanced oil recovery, fracturing and other drilling techniques, and high-viscosity oil multiphase flow hydrodynamics. In addition to his specialization he is knowledgeable about practical approaches to drilling technology and reservoir engineering. During his doctoral studies he published numerous research papers in prominent national and international journals, and received the best research paper award at an international conference on drilling technology in 2012.  

Neha Saxena is a Research Scholar at the Indian Institute of Technology, Dhanbad. Her current interest is in synthesizing a new surfactant that can be applied in various petroleum fields, especially in connection with unconventional resources. She has published extensively on surfactants in national and international journals.
