Xinjiang has an area as large as the sixth of the total area of China.There are abundant natural gas resources in the three basins in Xinjiang,so the natural gas market has great potentialities.It is estimated that in 2000,the natural gas requirement will be 40×10 8m 3,of which 95% will be used for industrial departments.The promulgated gas reserves in Tuha oil field in 1997 is 669 27×10 8m 3 and 4×10 8m 3 of gas was supplied to Urumqi city in 1997,which was mainly used for producing area.Because the comprehensive utilization of the natural gas resources in Tuha oil field started relatively late,there exist following problems:the gas being utilized insufficiently,not a little quantity of gas being vented in every year,requirement for LPG produced in the oil field being faced with reduction and the utilization of the stabilized NGL being difficult,etc.Therefore,in view of such characteristics as vast territory but few population,poor transport facilities and dispersed resources,etc.in Xinjiang,a train of thought is proposed,according to which,the natural gas in Tuha oil field should be digested first in Xinjiang,namely it can be processed into product or intermediate product first and then sold in whole country,to explore an effective path for comprehensively utilizing the natural gas by depending on scientific and technical progress.
