Effect of capillary condensation on the geomechanical and acoustic properties of tight formations, The
The main objective of this research is to experimentally assess how capillary condensation affects the mechanical and acoustic properties of tight rocks. In order to do so, a new facility was built to experimentally investigate the changes in the mechanical and acoustic properties due to capillary condensation. The experimental set-up is capable of the simultaneous acquisition of coupled stress, strain, resistivity, acoustic and flow data. Carbon dioxide was used as the pore pressure fluid in these experiments. Capillary condensation is the condensation of the gas inside nanopore space at a ...
