DATA (spreadsheet data, .xlsx format)
47-017-05866, WVGESMUDvnnShSpreadsheet_2018 Worksheet
Changed Elevation (ft) from 1224 to 1324; elevation determined likely to be incorrect on log(s) used for study given other materials available to and received by WVGES. 08/23/2018
 
47-031-00026 / 47-031-00028, WVGESMUDvnnShSpreadsheet_2018 Worksheet
Changed API number from 47-031-00026 to 47-031-00028 because API number determined to be incorrect on well log(s) used for study. In addition, changed well location values--latitude, longitude, UTME, and UTMN (to reflect change from well 26 to 28). Location values changed from 38.946205, -78.897758, 682183.3, 4312908.4 to 38.986587, -78.863907, 685012.0, 4317458.4. 08/30/2018
 
47-039-03766, WVGESMUDvnnShSpreadsheet_2018 Worksheet

47-039-05953, WVGESMUDvnnShSpreadsheet_2018 Worksheet
Changed NOTES; added note saying "Temperature for Marcellus at 6073 (log-measured depth, ft)." Marcellus tops not recorded in spreadsheet due to uncertainty of data at bottom of log. 08/30/2018
 
47-041-01561, WVGESMUDvnnShSpreadsheet_2018 Worksheet
Changed TOPS (log-measured depth, ft), TOPS (subsea depth, ft), and INTERVAL THICKNESS (ft) for Geneseo Shale Member AND Burket Shale Member from black to red values (i.e. TOPS and INTERVAL THICKNESS values should be associated with Burket Shale Member rather than Geneseo Shale Member). 08/16/2018
 
47-049-01077, WVGESMUDvnnShSpreadsheet_2018 Worksheet
Changed Temperature, Marcellus* (degrees F) from 136 to 135 after reviewing log. Changed NOTES; added note saying "Temperature for Marcellus at 7612 (log-measured depth, ft)." Marcellus tops not recorded in spreadsheet due to uncertainty of log data. 08/30/2018
 
47-059-01915, WVGESMUDvnnShSpreadsheet_2018 Worksheet
Changed NOTES; added note saying "Elevation questionable due to what seem to be discrepancies in materials available to and received by WVGES." 08/23/2018
 
47-061-01370, WVGESMUDvnnShSpreadsheet_2018 Worksheet
Changed NOTES; changed Union Springs to "lower Marcellus" in NOTES. 08/23/2018
 
47-067-00656, WVGESMUDvnnShSpreadsheet_2018 Worksheet
Changed TOPS (log-measured depth, ft), TOPS (subsea depth, ft), and INTERVAL THICKNESS (ft) for Rhinestreet Shale Member AND Rhinestreet Shale from black to red values (i.e. TOPS and INTERVAL THICKNESS values should be associated with Rhinesteet Shale rather than Rhinestreet Shale Member). 08/16/2018
 
47-081-00626, WVGESMUDvnnShSpreadsheet_2018 Worksheet
Changed TOPS (log-measured depth, ft), TOPS (subsea depth, ft), and INTERVAL THICKNESS (ft) for Rhinestreet Shale Member AND Rhinestreet Shale from red to black values (i.e. TOPS and INTERVAL THICKNESS values should be associated with Rhinesteet Shale Member rather than Rhinestreet Shale). 08/30/2018
 
47-083-00111, WVGESMUDvnnShSpreadsheet_2018 Worksheet
Changed TOPS (subsea depth, ft) for Upper Portion of Oatka Creek Member AND "upper Marcellus A", Lower Portion of Oatka Creek Member AND "upper Marcellus B", Cherry Valley Member AND drillers' "Cherry Valley", and Union Springs Member AND "lower Marcellus" from black to red values (i.e. TOPS values should be associated with "upper Marcellus A" rather than Upper Portion of Oatka Creek Member, "upper Marcellus B" rather than Lower Portion of Oatka Creek Member, drillers' "Cherry Valley" rather than Cherry Valley, and "lower Marcellus" rather than Union Springs Member). 08/16/2018
 
47-099-01975, WVGESMUDvnnShSpreadsheet_2018 Worksheet

47-103-00644, WVGESMUDvnnShSpreadsheet_2018 Worksheet
Changed TOPS (log-measured depth, ft), TOPS (subsea depth, ft), and INTERVAL THICKNESS (ft) for Middlesex Shale Member AND Middlesex Shale from red to black values (i.e. TOPS and INTERVAL THICKNESS values should be associated with Middlesex Shale Member rather than Middlesex Shale). 08/16/2018
 
47-103-02767, WVGESMUDvnnShSpreadsheet_2018 Worksheet
Changed TOPS (log-measured depth, ft), TOPS (subsea depth, ft), and INTERVAL THICKNESS (ft) for Middlesex Shale Member AND Middlesex Shale from black to red values (i.e. TOPS and INTERVAL THICKNESS values should be associated with Middlesex Shale rather than Middlesex Shale Member). 08/16/2018
 
Temperature, Marcellus Column Heading, WVGESMUDvnnShSpreadsheet_2018 Worksheet
Added explanatory note about wells that have temperature value but no Marcellus depth or thickness data. 08/30/2018
 
Cherry Valley Column Headings, WVGESMUDvnnShSpreadsheet_2018 Worksheet
Changed Driller's to drillers' for all columns with words drillers' "Cherry Valley" for correctness and consistency with all other RI-35 materials. 08/23/2018
 
Temperature, Marcellus, File Description Worksheet
Added explanatory note about wells that have temperature value but no Marcellus depth or thickness data. 08/30/2018
 
Cherry Valley, File Description Worksheet
Added drillers' "Cherry Valley" and related explanations as necessary. 08/28/2018
 

 
INTERACTIVE MAP
Interactive Map Data
Made all well-specific data changes listed above to all well-based layers. 09/07/2018
 
Well Number and Location Change for 47-031-00026 to 47-031-00028
Changed 47-031-00026 to 47-031-00028 as incorrect API number was recorded on well logs. As such, a small portion of contours in the eastern panhandle was adjusted. Layers associated with Oatka Creek A/"upper Marcellus A," Oatka Creek/"upper Marcellus," Cherry Valley, Union Springs/"lower Marcellus," and Marcellus Net Shale were adjusted. 09/07/2018
 
Lower Part Huron Member of the Ohio Shale Approximate Lateral Lithofacies Boundary
Adjusted the approximate Lateral Lithofacies Boundary for the Lower Part Huron Member of the Ohio Shale VERY slightly so that well 47-081-00626 falls just to the west of the line (rather than east). As such, layers associated with the Huron, Java, Angola, and Rhinestreet also were adjusted VERY slightly. 09/07/2018
 
"upper Marcellus" Layer Names and Data Field Labels
Updated "upper Marcellus" layer names and Study Wells++ data field labels to include "A" and "B" where missing for clarity and consistency. 09/10/2018
 
Cherry Valley Group Name
Updated group name from Isochore Cherry Valley Mbr Marcellus Fm + unnamed limestones (Fig 11d) to Isochore Cherry Valley Mbr Marcellus Fm + drillers' Cherry Valley (Fig 11d) for consistency. 09/07/2018
 
"Transition Zone" Layer Name
Updated layer name from ~Eastern Extent--Needmore Shale to ~Eastern Extent "Transition Zone" (or western extent Needmore Shale) for clarity. 09/07/2018
 
Interactive Map Services
Improved documentation and metadata for REST services. 09/13/2018
