If you are looking for the Organic Rich portion of  the play, this link will get you to the most recent data.

The map at the bottom of the page shows where it is present in KY & WV but may be too thin or organic lean but will still have the possibility to produce due to migration & other trapping.

I have a question about the map of the Rogersville below. Most of the maps do not include very much of Mason County WV. However, I have seen this map which does. Many maps by the same KY group even cut out Mason County. Do you consider this to be more accurate?

Yes, I agree. Seems a little short on price. It is just a matter of time before Cabell and Wayne County will be seeing a noticeable increase in activity. Even though the price of oil and gas is down the country is moving towards developing and converting more uses for all the gas that is in the ground.

Rogersville Extents - Ky & Western West Virginia

I got an email from someone saying that they'd been offered $25/acre for a decently large tract of land in Cabell County.  I suggested that $25 was not likely to be the price for long.  The Rogersville Shale definitely underlies the county, and the Trenton Limestone probably underlies the county.  There are companies working them, but the play is in its infancy.  I think signing for $25/acre now is probably selling short.  Even if it's not, you can certainly negotiate for more.  Wayne County property was getting $250-$500/acre until the recent dip in oil prices.  Now that Cabot is the only game in town there, prices have settled down some.  But I think I would hold out right now.  Also, get together with neighbors and negotiate together.
