The efficient development of shale gas has become the focus of the world. Based on the development status of shale gas in China, the distribution characteristics of shale gas are described, and the current development technologies are analyzed from the perspectives of different burial depths and horizontal wells, respectively. The results show that the horizontal well-staged fracturing technology is the main development technology at present, but with the increasing difficulty of resource exploration, it is difficult to use the technology. In the process of shale gas development, there are some problems, such as the technology can not meet the actual needs, safety and environmental protection are facing challenges, and the development cost is high. Finally, some suggestions are given for the future development of shale gas, which provides theoretical guidance and help for the efficient development of shale gas in the next step.
