    "Within much of Ohio, the Utica is directly underlain by, and in part is an equivalent facies arrangement with, the Point Pleasant formation, which is comprised of interbedded organic-rich limestones and black shales," says Wickstrom, who defined the Point Pleasant/Utica relationship in Ohio in a paper released in the early s. Gas-prone areas of Utica Shale found to be in the deeper portion of the basin. Much of Ohio may contain appreciable amounts of oil within Utica Wells, as illustrated by this schematic cross section by Ryder,() which shows the results of geochemical analyses of well samples. Why Ohio may be the Focus of the Utica-Point Pleasant Play.

DEVONIAN SHALES OF OHIO AND THEIR EASTERN AND SOUTHERN EQUIVALENTS. Book Description: The Devonian-Mississippian black-shale sequence of eastern North America is a distinctive stratigraphic interval generally characterized by low clastic influx, high organic production in the water column, anaerobic bottom conditions, and the relative absence of fossil evidence for biologic activity.

The Belpre Tephra is the lowest prominent volcaniclastic unit in the Givetian and Upper Devonian of the Appalachian Basin, originally described and named by Collins () as a tephra suite in the Ohio Shale from numerous cores in eastern Ohio.

Location: Lucas County, Ohio Time: to million years ago, during the Devonian period About this Famous Find: Throughout the Devonian, shallow seas moved in and out over much of North America, including flourished in these warm, tropical seas, and marine animals (specifically fish) diversified to the degree that the Devonian has been referred to as “The Age of Fishes.”.

The Upper Devonian Shale (UD) is a stacked interval that is roughly three times as thick as the Marcellus Shale, which sits just below it (the Marcellus is part of the Middle Devonian formation.

Black shales are usually interpreted to require anoxic bottom waters and deeper water sedimentation. There has long been a debate about whether the Devonian Cleveland Shale Member of the Ohio Shale (CSM) was deposited in shallow- or deep-water depositional environments.

This study looked at the CSM at 3 stratigraphic sections and 5 well cores in northeastern Ohio. Morehead, KY, Ohio Shale; K—Chestnut Mound m above base, Chattanooga Shale; L—Hurricane Bridge m above base, Chattanooga Shale.

73 OVER ET AL.—DEVONIAN PROTOSALVINIA (FOERSTIA) OF. The Devonian-Mississippian transition was a time of climatic and tectonic change. The Devonian-Mississippian black shales (Ohio and Sunbury shales) were deposited at the end of a global greenhouse state, a time of warm, equable climate with low latitu-dinal thermal gradients, high CO 2 concentrations, and elevated sea levels (Fischer, ).

most likely equivalents of the Lilley Formation in southern Ohio. The Devonian–Mississippian black shales from this area, and from all of the eastern and cen-tral United States, form one of the most prominent and economically significant stratigraphic intervals.

The Devonian Period is known as the age of fishes and that appellation is in part derived from the remarkable fauna of bony fishes, sharks, and armor-plated arthrodires, some of which reached 20 feet in length, that are well known from the Ohio Shale and particularly the upper member of this unit, the Cleveland Shale.

Black shale and related gray shale and sandstones in Oklahoma, the Illinois Basin of Kentucky and Tennessee, and the Appalachian Basin of Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee are assigned to the Chattanooga Formation, named for strata initially described by Hayes () near Chattanooga, Tennessee.

While all Upper Devonian black shales in Tennessee are placed in the. Black shales are organic-rich, fine-grained sedimentary rocks which, when carefully studied, can reveal a wealth of sedimentologic detail that reflects a range of depositional settings and paleoenvironmental conditions (e.g., Schieber, a).

In the U.S., black shales such as the Devonian Antrim, Ohio, and New Albany Shales are major gas producers (Curtis, ). The Devonian shales of the eastern United States are a potential source for a tremendous volume of liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons.

Upper Devonian shales of special significance are the Ohio Shale, New Albany, Chattanooga and others which can be correlated with the Antrim Shale of Michigan.

Department of Energy. However, thermal maturity data of the Whitehill Formation shows the organic matter to be overmature, with vitrinite reflectance equivalent values greater than 3% R o V. Total sulphur data for the Whitehill Formation and the Devonian/Carboniferous shales suggests that both were influenced by marine environments.

Both the KWV and Ohio/Sunbury. This interval includes the Mississippian Sunbury Shale and Berea Sandstone, Devonian Ohio Shale (Cleveland, Three Lick Bed, Upper Huron, Middle Huron, Lower Huron, Chagrin Shales), and the Devonian Olentangy and Rhinestreet Shales (Java equivalents).

The decision to include the Berea Sand warrants clarification. Schieber, J., and Lazar, R.O.,(eds.) Devonian Black Shales of the Eastern U.S.: New Insights into Sedimentology and Stratigraphy from the Subsurface and Outcrops in the Illinois and Appalachian Basins.

11 The Canajoharie shale and Snake Hill shale are found in the eastern part of the state and are lithologically equivalent, but older than the western portions of the Utica 10 Alpha, 11 Alpha, 12 Alpha, Draft SGEIS 9/30/, Page The Eastern Devonian shales are represented by a sequence of sediments extending from New York state, south to the northern regions of Georgia and Alabama, and west into Ohio and to the Michigan and Ilinois Basins.

Correlatives are known in Texas. The shale is regionally known by a number of names: Chattanooga, Dunkirk, Rhinestreet, Huron, Antrim, Ohio, Woodford, etc. In their description of the enormous Ordovician eruptions, Huff et al.

The term "Marcellus Shale" is the preferred name throughout most of the Appalachian region, although the term "Marcellus Formation" is also acceptable within the State of Pennsylvania. The unit was first described and named as the "Marcellus shales" by J.

Hall in This is particularly evident across Ohio, where an R h value of ± appears valid down to basement. North of Ohio, values increase markedly, whereas to the south of the salt pinch‐out, in West Virginia and eastern Kentucky, values as low as are found in Devonian shales at 1– km depth, although values deeper in the section may.

The Devonian (/ d ɪ ˈ v oʊ. n i. ən, d ə- d ɛ-/ dih-VOH-nee-ən, də- deh-) is a geologic period and system of the Paleozoic, spanning 60 million years from the end of the Silurian, million years ago (Mya), to the beginning of the Carboniferous, Mya. It is named after Devon, England, where rocks from this period were first studied.

The first significant adaptive radiation. The West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey has posted selected references on Devonian Shales, especially the Marcellus Shale, on their website. Similar information on Appalachian basin shale can be found on the websites for the geological surveys in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York.

), that have yet to be recognized in other Frasnian intervals of the study area. In Ohio, the Frasnian equivalent of Selmier and Dowelltown is known as the Upper Olentangy Shale, and the Trousdale/Blocher equivalent is known as the Lower Olentangy Shale.

In Tennessee, strata that are age-equivalent to the Blocher/Trousdale interval occur. Devonian Period - Devonian Period - Devonian geology: The union of the paleocontinents of Laurentia and Baltica occurred near the beginning of the Devonian to form a single landmass that has been referred to both as Laurussia and as Euramerica.

The northern portion of the combined landmass gave rise to widespread areas of continental desert, playa, and alluvial plain deposits that form one of. The inconspicuous fossil Foerstia marks a time zone within the black shale sequences of Late Devonian age of the eastern United States.

It is best known from locations in Ohio, but it has been reported from Ontario to Tennessee and provides a basis for stratigraphic correlation between the Illinois and Appalachian Basins.

Middle to Upper Paleozoic rocks, deposited during the Devonian, Mississippian, Pennsylvanian-Permian, undoubtedly were deposited west of their present area of outcrop in central and eastern Ohio.

A bit of evidence supports this conclusion because the Upper Devonian Ohio Shale is preserved more than 30 miles west of its present contiguous.At least nine deposits of oil shale ranging from Devonian to Tertiary age have been reported in different parts of Brazil (Padula, ).

Of these, two deposits have received the most interest: (1) the lacustrine oil shale of Tertiary age in the Paraíba Valley in the State of São Paulo northeast of the city of São Paulo; and (2) the oil shale of the Permian Iratí Formation, a widespread.
