 Description: The study quantifies, at a preliminary level, Marcellus Shale natural gas resources for West Virginia using a geologic-based (volumetric) approach. Original gas-in-place was determined using geophysical well log data from >300 wells across the State and core data from >10 wells. Results and products include: 1) a conservative estimate of total original gas-in-place of 122 TCF with natural gas concentration progressively decreasing from north and north-central West Virginia to the southwest and 2) ten stratigraphic cross-sections highlighting the Marcellus Shale as well as maps identifying reservoir location, its geographic extent, thickness, depth, formation temperature, level of organic maturity, and original gas-in-place volumes.
