Innovative Methodology for Detection of Fracture-Controlled Sweet Spots in the Northern Appalachian Basin

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The primary goal was to enter Phase 2 by analyzing geophysical logs and sidewall cores from a verification well drilled into the Trenton/Black River section along lineaments. However, the well has not yet been drilled; Phase 2 has therefore not been accomplished. We have switched oil and gas exploration and production companies, and are now in continued negotiations with Fortuna concerning a plan to retrieve 18 m of horizontal core across a gas-charged zone in the Trenton/Black River in central New York State, the ''hottest'' play in the Appalachian Basin. We completed analysis of remote sensing images to determine, by ... continued below

Description

The primary goal was to enter Phase 2 by analyzing geophysical logs and sidewall cores from a verification well drilled into the Trenton/Black River section along lineaments. However, the well has not yet been drilled; Phase 2 has therefore not been accomplished. We have switched oil and gas exploration and production companies, and are now in continued negotiations with Fortuna concerning a plan to retrieve 18 m of horizontal core across a gas-charged zone in the Trenton/Black River in central New York State, the ''hottest'' play in the Appalachian Basin. We completed analysis of remote sensing images to determine, by using the weights-of-evidence method, which images and processing techniques result in lineaments that best reflect the fractures found in outcrop. The conclusions do not differ from the preliminary conclusions reported in the previous progress report. These data continue to demonstrate that integration of aeromagnetic and remote sensing lineaments, surface structure, and soil gas and seismic allows us to extrapolate Trenton-Black River trends away from confirmatory seismic lines.
