Abstract

Series of experiments were conducted on core samples from three prominent unconventional basins in the United States to investigate the effect of temperature and confining pressure on rock mechanical properties of Barnett, Wolfcamp, and Eagleford shales. Eleven unsaturated outcrop core samples (four Barnett, four Eagleford, and three Wolfcamp) were used in this experimental work. Rock mechanical properties were measured at different temperatures and confining pressures. Test results were analyzed and compared at each step.
