Just curious whether anyone here has any knowledge of the Trenton Blackriver formation
I had a conversation awhile back with PA state geologist (before Marcellus became a play) and he raved about it's potential going on and on using technical terms that after 5 mins went way over my head and my eyes started to glaze over. I own minerals in southern Clearfield county and supposed the TBR fairway runs right thru it
I think I read somewhere that it was in the 12-15K deep are much shallower in NY and WV. I also remember a TBR well being drilled somewhere in vicinity of Elkins WV few yrs back that was a monster, could be mistaken but somehow that just sticks in my mind
We missed out on a TBR well drilled in NYS about 15 years ago. The location was North of the Elmira-Corning airport.....they drilled to the North from our land...we missed inclusion by less than a quarter mile....sigh. A friend of mine had one drilled on his property a few years prior to that, to the ENE of our property. Let's just say, he was smart and banked it all, as these wells have a LARGE IP with a relatively swift decline curve.
He has since retired, about 10 years early.
To my knowledge, the area that was developed ran from 40-50 miles south of the NY/PA border in NW PA to a point about 40-50 miles north of the NY/PA border, and seemed to have stopped there, near the Spencer-Van Etten area.....but I could be wrong about that.
