Abstract Two-phase fluid flow in tight rocks containing cracks is not fully understood. Published experimental studies performed on water-saturated tight rocks often associate gas flow with instabilities. A common observation is that gas begins to flow once it has reached a given breakthrough pressure. Pronounced sample dilation associated with the gas breakthrough is frequently observed experimentally, which is difficult to explain using standard two-phase flow models developed for porous and… CONTINUE READING
