      Devonian Shale Gas. Devonian shales were formed in a shallow sea that covered the eastern half of what now constitutes the continental United States. Devonian shale gas is defined as natural gas produced from the fractures, pore spaces, and physical matrix of shales deposited during the Devonian period of geologic time. # 3 / Janssens, A. and deWitt, W., Jr. / POTENTIAL NATURAL GAS RESOURCES IN THE DEVONIAN SHALES IN OHIO, Columbus, , pb, 12 pages, 1 plate (in pocketO 10 figs., 2 tables, - 3 -, $ 6 # 6 / White / Extent of Till Sheets and Ice Margins in Northeast Ohio, Columbus, 1 folded sheet with 6 figs., used, $ 6.

      There are four major resources included under the general term “unconventional gas': natural gas from low permeability (“tight”) formations in the West and Southwest, natural gas from the Devonian shales of the East, methane from the coal seams of the East and Mid-West, and methane from geopressured aquifers along the Gulf by: 4. Natural gas production data sets available at the Kentucky Geological Survey will be analyzed to investigate the ability to predict the performance of Devonian shale gas wells in eastern Kentucky. In addition, these data will be spatial analyzed to identify better producing areas and make the attempt to relate those areas to geologic control.

Get this from a library. Potential natural gas resources in the Devonian shales in Ohio. [Adriaan Janssens; Wallace De Witt, Jr.]. Organic matter in the Devonian gas shales has large surface areas similar to that found in coal. Coal seams are currently being investigated as potential sequestering sites for CO 2 —the most important greenhouse gas.

Naturally occurring organic matter (kerogen) is a microporous material that possesses a very high surface area and, hence, sorption capacity for by: This report considers the potential natural gas resources of the Devonian shales of eastern Ohio.

Under cover of younger rocks these shales increase in thickness eastward from less than ft near the outcrop in central Ohio to more than ft in Jefferson County.

One giant gas field. the Big Sandy field in eastern Kentucky, has produced more than 2 Tcf (x10(10) m3) of gas from Devonian shale. The Devonian shales cover a broad area of the north-eastern U.S., extending westward into the Illinois basin, where they are called the New Albany shale group (Devonian Mississippian).Cited by: SPE SPE Technically Recoverable Devonian Shale Gas in Ohio, West Virginia, and Kentucky aa and k, Lewh & Assocs.

samples and logs to evaluate gas potential of Devonian shales in Ohio. Provo () used samples and logs for a study of Devonian shale in the central Appalachian Basin. Charpentier and others () did a qualitative assessment of production potential of Devonian shales in the Appalachian Basin based upon thickness of black shales.

model, the large component of adsorbed natural gas in organic-rich shales suggest that black shale might be an attractive sequestration target. The project is concentrating on the Devonian Ohio shale of eastern Kentucky (Figure 2). This area is both the most active area (number of wells drilled over the past 5 years) and the most prolific Cited by: The Ohio oil and natural gas industries emp citizens, resulting in $ million in wages.

The industries paid $ million in royalties to landowners, and $84 million in free energy. The state's oil and natural gas industry continues to grow, having topped the $1 billion mark in market value production for four consecutive years, including $ billion in   Geologists have known of the presence of natural gas in shale rock for years, but until recently, could not cost-effectively extract it.

Two factors came together in recent years to make shale gas production economically viable: (1) advances in horizontal drilling; and (2) advances in hydraulic fracturing.

Black shales are usually interpreted to require anoxic bottom waters and deeper water sedimentation. There has long been a debate about whether the Devonian Cleveland Shale Member of the Ohio Shale (CSM) was deposited in shallow- or deep-water depositional environments.

This study looked at the CSM at 3 stratigraphic sections and 5 well cores in Cited by: 1. Shale gas was first extracted as a resource in Fredonia, New York, inin shallow, low-pressure fractures. Horizontal drilling began in the s, and in a well was first fracked in the U.S.

Federal price controls on natural gas led to shortages in the s. Faced with declining natural gas production, the federal government invested in many supply alternatives, including. Devonian shales were formed approximately million years ago in a shallow sea that covered the eastern half of what now constitutes the continental United States.

Devonian shale gas is defined as natural gas produced from the fractures, pore spaces, and physical matrix of shales deposited during the Devonian period of geologic time.

The areal extent of the Marcellus Shale underlying the states of New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and eastern Ohio ranges f to 54, square miles (roughly 31million acres), and the formation has an average thickness of approximately feet.

Although the true natural gas producing potential of. One of these eastern shales is the Middle Devonian Marcellus Shale, which has been extensively developed for natural gas and natural gas liquids since The Marcellus is one of the basal units in a thick Devonian shale sedimentary sequence in the Appalachian basin.

The goal of this project was to assess the resources and develop the engineering technology needed for the production of natural gas from organic-rich, Devonian-age shales in the Appalachian, Michigan, and Illinois Basins (Schrider and Wise, ).

The research successfully produced reams of engineering, geologic, and resource data on many of. A report issued by the ODNR in May titled "Mapping Source Rock and Thermal Maturity of the Devonian Shale Interval in Eastern Ohio." The report takes a close look at the Devonian Shale layer and concludes two sub-layers--the Huron Shale and Rhinestreet Shale--have "significant oil and gas potential and may be good candidates for modern-day horizontal .Regions titled, “Natural Gas Drilling in the Marcellus Shale under the NPDES Program” Ma extraction activities at all of those shale deposits will present the same challenges for waste disposal.
