This paper is concerned with the experimental identification of some chemoporoelastic parameters of a reactive shale from data obtained in pore pressure transmission - chemical potential tests. The parameter identification is done by matching the observed pressure response with a theoretical solution of the experiment. This solution is obtained within the framework of Biot theory of poroelasticity, extended to include physico-chemical interactions. Results of an experiment on a Pierre II shale performed in a pressure cell are reported and analyzed.
