Abstract

Countries around the world are now stepping up efforts to develop the extraction of shale gas resource. Shale gas, as an unconventional energy with huge reserves and broad development prospects, has an increasing impact on the global energy market. However, the environmental impact brought by shale gas extraction has also attracted wide attention from the society. For example, ground water and air pollution and the negative influence on local ecological system caused by hydraulic fracturing have become the focus of attention from the society and public opinion. In this paper, the environmental impact caused by hydraulic fracturing on local water resource, surface water and ground water contamination, air pollution, and induced earthquakes are summarized and discussed. In the future, this analysis will have guiding significance for environmental protection in the process of shale gas extraction.
