Progress and Prospects of Shale Gas Exploration and Development in Sichuan, China

Zhicheng Liu, Shaoyong Hu, Fabin Li, and Ming Jing
Abstract—Shale gas is a huge amount of clean energy resources. America's Shale Gas Revolution has inspired a boom in glob-al exploration and development of shale gas. China has rich shale gas resources. To cope with severe energy demand and climate change challenges, China is strongly promoting the shale gas exploration and development, especially in Sichuan has achieved initial results. Except North America, Sichuan commercially developed shale gas at the earliest. Therefore, Sichuan’s shale gas exploration and development to a large extent reflect and affect the future development prospects of China's shale gas. This paper systematically summarizes the practice of Sichuan shale gas exploration and development, analyzes the development prospects of shale gas in Sichuan, and puts forward suggestions on the development of Sichuan shale gas.

Index Terms—China, development prospect, progress, Sichuan, shale gas.
