Utica Shale Appalachian Basin Exploration Consortium

Grants and Contracts Details


The Utica Shale playbook study will be conducted as a coordinated effort with the new “West Virginia University Shale Research, Education, Policy and Economic Development Center.” Research will be conducted by personnel from the Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky state geological surveys, Washington University, Smith Stratigraphic LLC and DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL). The work will be divided into nine tasks, each of which will have a lead state geological survey or, in the case of New York, a lead state team. To the extent possible, data collection, sampling and other work for each task will be conducted by the staff from each survey or team in their own state. Samples will then be shipped to the task leaders for analysis. After the analyses are finished, the results will be posted on the Consortium website.
