Combining Surface and Downhole Hydrocarbon Mapping for Defining the Utica Shale
Amplified Geochemical Imaging, LLC
The Utica shale play is a difficult area in which to explore due to the numerous hydrocarbon sources and multiple stacked zones. These multiple stacked pays result in mixed drilling success with both economic and noneconomic drilling results. In addition there are numerous geohazards with the excessive fracturing and faulting in the area.
This case history will demonstrate how surface hydrocarbon mapping was used to:
Additionally, the downhole geochemical logging will demonstrate how the surface expression of signals can be correlated with surface expressions in proving an understanding of:
