Black Shale Core Workshop

Posted by Amanda Sprinzl on April 16, 2014 at 10:20 AM Comments comments (0)

The Ohio Geological Society, Ohio DNR Division of Geological Survey, in cooperation with Miami University, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and DLZ-Ohio, Inc., will host a core workshop focused on Upper Devonian shales of northern Ohio. Workshop participants will learn techniques to document the lithological characteristics of shale-rich stratigraphic intervals and interpret their environments of deposition. Participants will also learn about the relationships between lithology, organic content, and geophysical-log signature, and how these components are used in regional sequence stratigraphic correlations and predicting the hydrocarbon potential of shale reservoirs in the northern Appalachian Basin. Workshop activities will consist of background lectures on the Devonian regional tectonic setting and stratigraphy of the basin, as well as an overview of core logging and evaluation techniques. Participants will work in small groups to log select intervals of Upper Devonian cores from northern Ohio, and complete exercises focused on identifying key sequence stratigraphic horizons and identifying zones of potential hydrocarbon resources based on lithologic characteristics, log-signature, and organic geochemical data. The workshop will conclude with an optional field trip to local Devonian shale outcrops. For additional information please visit: http://geosurvey.ohiodnr.gov/news-events/upcoming-events or contact Joe Hannibal. Copies of the flyer and registration are available on the OhioDNR website here.
