This paper provides an experimental support for increasing the flow conductivity of coal reservoir by identifying permeability change rule caused by reactions with different minerals in coal after injecting carbon dioxide. Based on measurement of nitrogen adsorption, mineral composition and permeability of medium-high rank coal in Tunlan mine and Sihe mine, it is used to investigate the permeability change rule caused by reactions with different minerals in coal and its improving effect after injecting carbon dioxide. A permeability change model was established by making a nonlinear regression analysis of the initial permeability, the reaction time and the improved permeability. The results showed that as a result of CO2-water-rock interaction, permeability of medium-high rank coal increases at first and then decreases with time going by after injecting carbon dioxide. The permeability of Sihe coal samples reaches maximum value earlier than that of Tunlan coal samples. Improving effect of permeability of Sihe coal samples is better than that of Tunlan coal samples. The initial permeability which is too large or too small is insensitive to the change of permeability, while the medium permeability within 0.1--0.2×10-3μm2 is more favorable. The reliability of the mathematical model is verified by the experiment. The results can also provide a theoretical basis for the analysis of permeability change after injecting carbon dioxide.
