The multiple hydraulic fracturing is an indispensable means to improve the production mass of natural gas in development of shale gas. The fracturing water consumption of a horizontal well reaches 10x103 m3. However, the water been injected into shale layer is not reverse discharged completely. How does this part of water stays in shale layer? What's the role it plays? And how does it have any effects on the development? We studied effects of water on shale rock mechanical properties experimentally to answer these questions.
