        By tectonic setting and origin, the Appalachian Basin is a multistage or composite, retroarc foreland basin (e.g., Dickinson, ; Miall, ) that largely formed in response to tectonic loading during four, nearly continuous orogenies on the eastern margin of Laurentia/Laurussia during approximately Ma from the Early–Middle Ordovician.

      The goal of this research is to evaluate, through well log analysis and depth-dependent salinity models, how uncertainty in the salinity threshold value impacts the delineation of suitable sites for carbon sequestration below a depth of m within the Trenton Limestone (Ordovician), St. Peter Sandstone, Knox Supergroup (Ordovician-Cambrian. Tectonic events that noticeably affected the Viola in south-central Kansas took place between the Middle Ordovician and the Middle Pennsylvanian. The first of these occurred after deposition of the St. Peter Sandstone (Lee, ). At this time the Central Kansas Arch began its development (Lee, ; Lee and others, ; Adkison, ).

Middle Ordovician Saint Peter Sandstone gas play in the Appalachian Basin: Responsibility: Matthew Humphreys and Anna E. Watson. EVOLUTION OF SEDIMENTARY BASINS-APPALACHIAN BASIN Principal Oil and Gas Plays in the Appalachian Basin (Province ) By Wallace de Witt, Jr.

Abstract The Appalachian basin is an elongate, asymmetric foreland basin that is aboutsquare miles in area.

It is more than 1, miles long and as much as miles by: The USGS has conducted numerous assessments of undiscovered oil and gas in the Appalachian Basin, including studies of the Marcellus Shale.

The region extends from Alabama to Maine. The following is an overview of the assessments: Ordovician Point Pleasant Formation and Utica Shale (FS ) Middle Devonian Marcellus Shale (FS ).

The Middle Ordovician St. Peter Sandstone and Glenwood Formation (Ancell Group) represent a significant target for gas exploration at the base of the Tippecanoe sequence in the Michigan basin. The Appalachian basin is an elongate depression in the crystalline basement complex which contains a great volume of predominantly sedimentary stratified rocks.

Recent Horizontal Drilling Oil & Gas Plays in the Appalachian Basin: A Quick Overview The success of shale gas & oil is a result of horizontal drilling and high-volume hydraulic fracturing.

In the Appalachian Basin the two big plays are the Marcellus and the Utica. The Middle Ordovician St. Peter Sandstone and Glenwood Formation (Ancell Group) represent a significant target for gas exploration at the base of the Tippecanoe sequence in the Michigan basin.

Core and well log data show that the St. Peter-Glenwood interval contains numerous carbonate units that provide the basis for both regional correlation. Assessing the mechanical integrity of the caprock-reservoir system is necessary to evaluate the practical storage capacity for geologic CO 2 storage.

We used a combination of well-log and experimental data to estimate the statistical distribution (mean and variance) of rock mechanical properties of Cambrian-Ordovician strata within the Northern Appalachian region of Ohio and.

Hydrocarbon production in the Lower Ordovician St. Peter Sandstone of the Michigan basin was established in with the discovery of natural gas in JEM- Edward well in Missaukee County.

Since then, numerous producing wells were discovered and the formation has become one of the most prolific hydrocarbon plays in the basin. The play involves Middle Ordovician limestone approximately between the Allegheny structural front and the western limit of the Appalachian basin.

This play area is northwest of the Valley and Ridge part of the Appalachian Fold and Thrust Belt and contains few, if any, bedding-plane detachment structures in pre-Upper Ordovician rocks. Click to view abstract and poster in PDF format.

The main focus today in terms of oil and natural gas production is in the Tri-State area. The Appalachian Mountains span across five geologic provinces (as defined by the USGS): the Appalachian Basin, the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Piedmont Province, the Adirondack Province, and the New England Province.

The Appalachian Basin. The Appalachian Basin is a foreland basin containing Paleozoic sedimentary rocks of Early Cambrian through Early Permian age. This map of The United States superimposed with the Middle Ordovician version of Laurentia shows a substantial basin stretching across much of our area of interest.

This hot marine bed encouraged an explosion and accumulation of macro algae and other simple life forms that, million years later, have become the hydrocarbon focus of this blog.
