Assessment Potential Shale-Oil and Shale-Gas Resources in Silurian Shales of Jordan, 2014

National and Global Petroleum Assessment Project

USGS Publication: Fact Sheet 2014–3082
Using a geology-based assessment methodology, the U.S. Geological Survey estimated means of 11 million barrels of potential shale-oil and 320 billion cubic feet of shale-gas resources in Silurian shales of Jordan.

Map of Assessed Tight-Gas Resources in the United States, 2014

National Assessment of Oil and Gas Project

USGS Publication: Digital Data Series DDS–69–HH
This report presents a digital map of tight-gas resource assessments in the United States as part of the USGS National Assessment of Oil and Gas Project. Using a geology-based assessment methodology, the USGS quantitatively estimated potential volumes of undiscovered, technically recoverable natural gas resources within tight-gas assessment units (AUs). This is the second digital map product in a series of USGS unconventional oil and gas resource maps.

A Synoptic Examination of Causes of Land Loss in Southern Louisiana as Related to the Exploitation of Subsurface Geologic Resources

Outside Publication: Journal of Coastal Research
Historic wetland losses along the Gulf of Mexico coastline have long given support to the idea that the observed changes do not follow the conventional marine erosion of a quasi-stable continental mass. Deterioration of the Mississippi delta is no exception. In an assessment of 33 of the major deltas in the world, Syvitski et al. (2009 found that 85% of them face areal reduction...

Upper Devonian-Mississippian stratigraphic framework of the Arkoma Basin

Upper Devonian-Mississippian stratigraphic framework of the Arkoma Basin and distribution of potential source-rock facies in the Woodford–Chattanooga and Fayetteville–Caney shale-gas systems

Outside Publication: AAPG Bulletin
Wireline logs were used to document the stratigraphic framework of Upper Devonian–Mississippian strata in the Arkoma Basin, and maps of high-gamma ray (HGR) log response were used to analyze the spatial distribution of potential source rocks in the Woodford–Chattanooga and Fayetteville–Caney shale-gas systems...

Application of binomial-edited CPMG to shale characterization

Outside Publication: Journal of Magnetic Resonance
Unconventional shale resources may contain a significant amount of hydrogen in organic solids such as kerogen, but it is not possible to directly detect these solids with many NMR systems. Binomial-edited pulse sequences capitalize on magnetization transfer between solids, semi-solids, and liquids to provide an indirect method of detecting solid organic materials in shales. ...
