The data set contains geologic and mining engineering data from drill holes penetrating through the Cherokee coal bed interval of the Overland Member of the Paleocene Fort Union Formation in the Little Snake River coal field and Red Desert area in south-central Wyoming.
The U.S. Geological Survey Central Energy Science Center (CERSC) was asked to provide allocations of oil and gas resources and numbers of potential wells calculated from these allocated resources for the BLM Carlsbad Planning Area in New Mexico. The resource allocations were based on the most current USGS assessment of continuous (unconventional) oil and gas resources within eleven geologically de
A time-dependent form of Darcy's Law was used to model pressure-driven fluid flow within homogeneous, isotropic, low-permeability carrier beds exhibiting a broad range of rock and fluid properties likely encountered in a variety of sedimentary sequences (Burke, 2022). In the study by Burke (2022), thermodynamic equations of state were used to determine thermophysical properties of supercritical po
As part of a broader research program to examine domestic source rock reservoirs, the Gulf Coast Petroleum Systems project of the USGS Energy Resources Program drilled a research borehole into Late Cretaceous mudstones in McLennan County, Texas, including the Cenomanian-Turonian Eagle Ford Group. A comprehensive wireline geophysical logging suite and over 600 ft of continuous core were obtained t
This data release contains the boundaries of conventional assessment units for the assessment of undiscovered oil and gas resources in China. The Assessment Unit is the fundamental unit used in the National Assessment Project for the assessment of undiscovered oil and gas resources. The Assessment Unit is defined within the context of the higher-level Total Petroleum System. The Assessment Unit is
Stable carbon and hydrogen isotopic data generated by off-line preparation and dual inlet mass spectrometric analysis used the determine the recommended values for the reference materials HCG-1, HCG-2, and HCG-3.
This data release contains the boundaries of assessment units and input data for the assessment of undiscovered oil and gas resources in the Bakken and Three Forks formations in the Williston Basin province in Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota. The Assessment Unit is the fundamental unit used in the National Assessment Project for the assessment of undiscovered oil and gas resources. The Asse
