Abstract: Continental shale is abundant with unconventional oil and gas and has considerable prospect for exploitation. However, due to deposited environment differences, continental shale presents unique characteristics in terms of structure and mineralogy compared to marine shale. The mechanical property is elemental parameter for reservoir production, but relevant studies of continental shale are rarely reported. In this study, several groups of mesoscale (0.1–10 mm) uniaxial compression tests were conducted on conti…
