Understanding the Basics of Ohio Geology



The Trenton Limestone:



The Trenton Limestone and accompanying Black River rocks are important in that they serve as the source for much or all hydrocarbon formation in the Appalachian basin.

*Natural Gas is used by Chesapeake free of charge as stated on Royalty statement.… Continue
