To investigate gas-migration processes in saturated low-permeability argillaceous rocks, gas-injection tests under different injection pressures were carried out at different scales: on core samples at the laboratory scale; in the packed-off section of boreholes at the borehole scale (HG-B); and in the sealed microtunnel at the tunnel scale (HG-A) – a 1:2 scale experiment at the Mont Terri Rock Laboratory, Switzerland. All three tests at the Mont Terri Rock Laboratory involved Opalinus Clay. A fully coupled hydromechanical model has been developed that takes account of elastic and plastic anisotropies, anisotropic two-phase flow based on the van Genuchten function, and...
