Fluid immiscibility between a CO 2 -rich fluid and brine has been described from several medium- to high-grade marbles and calcsilicates. Here we also report evidence for CH 4 -H 2 O immiscibility in low-grade metamorphic rocks from Wales and suggest that the flow of such immiscible fluids may be comparable to that of water-oil or water-gas mixtures in petroleum reservoirs. This analogy implies that where one fluid is being produced by reaction it will flow out of the rock while the other… CONTINUE READING
