Abstract. Our association plans to construct in situ formation deformation monitoring wells for shallow formation. In the pilot test, production and injection will be conducted to make the formation deform. Based on the result of the pilot test, we will investigate whether the compaction behavior was perfectly elastic or not. In addition, we plan to conduct coring and core tests to obtain rock properties. In the future, we would like to select the suitable constitutive equation for this gas
