We shall analyze the results of laboratory experiments on the electric treatment of a sandy-argillaceous rock by a “small-density” current. These experiments were carried out to study the nature of reversible changes to the permeability and the electric conductivity depending on the value of the electric field intensity, the duration of the electric treatment, and the total energy released per unit mass of the rock.
