Grants and Contracts Details


The prime objective of this proposed basin-wide research effort is to develop an integrated, multifaceted, resource-assessment model of Trenton-Black River reservoirs in New York, Ohio and West Virginia. A second objective is to define possible fairways within which to conduct more detailed studies, leading to further development of the gas resources in Ordovician fractured carbonates ofthe Appalachian basin. A third objective is to develop an integrated structural-diagenetic-stratigraphic model for the origin of Trenton-Black River hydrothermal dolomite reservoirs. These objectives will be achieved by creating an industry-government research consortium to conduct geologic, petrographc and geochemical studies in eight task areas. The research will be conducted by the Appalachian Oil and Natural Gas Research Consortium and administered through the West Virginia University Research Corporation. .
