Arjun H. Kohli and Mark D. Zoback Frictional properties of shale reservoir rocks Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth 118

Article first published online: 20 SEP 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgrb.50346

Key Points

  • Frictional strength decreases linearly with increasing clay and organic content.
  • Frictional stability undergoes a transition at ~30 wt% clay and organic content.
  • These results constrain shale microseismicity and the occurrence of slow slip.
