Partial List of Ongoing & Past Research on the Appalachian Basin's "Rome Trough"


Title: Rome Trough Consortium

This disk contains data from a multi-year study of the pre-Knox stratigraphic interval in the Rome Trough, a graben that contains a thickened section of the Rome and Conasauga Formations. The Rome Trough Consortium, a partnership consisting of the DOE, three state geological surveys and five Appalachian Basin energy companies, was formed to carry out this study.




Title: A Geologic Playbook for Trenton Black River Appalachian Basin Exploration

This project developed an integrated resource assessment model of the Trenton-Black River reservoirs in New York, Ohio and West Virginia. The effort addressed the increased development of the gas resources from the Trenton-Black River reservoirs and facilitated increased exploration and higher success rates in this emerging play. The final product of this project is a detailed and multi-disciplinary play book.
