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… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
