As part of a joint project with the Kentucky Geological Survey, the Ohio Geological Survey has issued Information Circular 60, Cambrian Pre-Knox Group Play in the Appalachian Basin. This 26-page report was authored by David C. Harris of the Kentucky Survey and Mark T. Baranoski of the Ohio Survey.
Harris and Baranoski discuss the potential for exploration in deeply buried rocks of Cambrian age below the Knox Group. They suggest that, although production from these reservoirs has been limited and is largely untested, the large number of gas shows in the Appalachian Basin indicate future exploration potential. The area of highest potential is that portion of the basin stretching from northeast Kentucky and adjacent parts of western West Virginia northward across eastern Ohio, northwest Pennsylvania, and western New York. They suggest that this area may hold as much as 460 billion cubic feet of recoverable gas resources.
Anyone interested in oil-and-gas exploration in the Appalachian Basin will find this report to be of value. (This report also was published by the Kentucky Geological Survey as KGS Information Circular 58, Series XI, and is available from that agency as well.)
