Utica potential has been revised up, click on the link for the full story.
I don't think you're at all stupid Tim.
I think you're pretty damn smart.
Did you download the Report contained within your linked article.
A lot of good info.
Thanks for your post and link.
I found this site for the report somewhat easier to work with. The tabs at the upper right allow one to go to the info quicker. There is much info to be found here and most is above my brain cells. Could someone with o/g knowledge give us some commentary on what is found in the data. My overall impression is this was a tremendous study, supported by major oil/gas companies using personnel from a number of university geology departments and state agencies to come to these conclusions.
I could see in some of the maps a faint white line along the Monroe and Belmont Ohio county borders with WV. Anyone willing to tell me what that means?

If you understand what this report says then quit your day job and go work for an E&P company. This thing is heavy on the science and some of it is beyond even my grasp. Short version: Point Pleasant is the best target because the clay content is lower than the Utica and the TOC is high enough to create a good reservoir.
It depends on how old you are Debra Lynn. The older you are the less excited you should be. The hearth can't handle too much as one runs out of room on the birthday cake for candles. Secondly, there is too much NG so it will be a long time for drilling and low prices.
green county is actually on a triple play and greene county is beng drilled right now in all three formations Uper Devonian Marcellus and Utica
