Evaluation of green and efficient development of shale gas resources in China Haomin Liu, Zaixu Zhang

Abstract

Green and efficient development is an inevitable requirement for sustainable development of shale gas industry in China. This paper selects 24 indicators from five dimensions of resource endowment, economy, technology, environment and policy to construct the evaluation indicator system of green and efficient development of shale gas resources in China, and applies the fuzzy-AHP method to comprehensively evaluate the green and efficient development of shale gas resources in China. The results show that the influencing extent on shale gas green and efficient development is resource endowment, technology, policy, economy and environment in turn, and resource endowment and development technology are the key to green and efficient development of shale gas in China. However, to realize the green and efficient development of China’s shale gas, the coordinated development of all aspects is necessary. Therefore, some suggestions are put forward based on the development status of China’s shale gas industry.

Keywords shale gas, green and efficient development, fuzzy-AHP method, fuzzy comprehensive evaluation
