Title: Lithology Studies of Upper Devonian Well Cuttings in Eastern Kentucky Gas Field: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Jane Negus-De Wys

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Well cuttings from 14 wells in the Eastern Kentucky gas field, studied under reflected light, permit comparison of lithology changes across the field and between stratigraphic units. Comparison is made with formation density logs, gas production studies, and geochemistry. Such field-study approach, in more detail, is valuable for future exploration and evaluation in production of gas from Upper Devonian shales in this area.
