With the research and application of the geology-engineering integration technologies, North America has won the victory of shale revolution, and the United States has realized energy independence, playing a dominant role in the global energy market. Its history and experience in shale revolution are the references of great value to the exploration and production of hydrocarbon resources in China. With abundant oil and gas in the exploration areas of Sinopec and various types of favorable targets, accelerating exploration and production is of great significance to improve China's energy structure and ensure national energy security. The application of geology-engineering integration has brought benefit development for the marine shale gas in the Sichuan Basin. In terms of realizing efficient exploration and production of the ultra-deep marine carbonate, tight sandstone and shale, five key studies are suggested to be strengthened: ①fine reservoir description and adaptive fracturing technology of exploration and production for complicated reservoirs, ②ultra-deep carbonate reservoir prediction and optimal drilling technology system, ③application of big data in realizing efficient adjustment and optimize completion program for tight sandstone gas reservoirs, ④development of multi-layer and three-dimensional production technology for marine shale oil and gas, ⑤research on the key problems in the deep, normal-pressure and continental shale oil and gas. To achieve high quality exploration and efficient production of oil and gas, Sinopec will keep strengthening the basic geological research and engineering technology innovation, upgrading technical equipment and following the idea of geology-engineering integration. And then, Sinopec will establish integrated operation coordination mechanism and emphasize integrated management of whole process in order to cut costs and increase efficiency.

Key words: geology-engineering integration, shale revolution, ultra-deep marine carbonate, tight reservoir, subtle reservoir
