The fine-grained “shale” deposits host a vast amount of unconventional oil and gas resources. This chapter examines the variations in lithofacies, patterns of well logs, geochemistry, and mineralogy in order to construct a sequence stratigraphic framework of the representative marine Barnett, Woodford, Marcellus, Mowry, and Niobrara fine-grained “shales” (USA) and the Author: Shu Jiang, Caineng Zou, Dazhong Dong, Wen Lin, Zhenlin Chen, LeiChen, Lanyu Wu, Wei Dang, Yajun Li. The Thermopolis Shale is a geologic formation which formed in west-central North America in the Albian age of the Late Cretaceous period. Surface outcroppings occur in central Canada, and the U.S. states of Montana and rock formation was laid down over about 7 million years by sediment flowing into the Western Interior formation's boundaries and Country: United States. Mancos Shale: Usage of Geologic Unit Name: Mancos Shale (AZ*,CO*,NM*,UT*,WY*) Mancos Group (CO*,UT*) This view shows part of the Mancos Shale where is crops out along the Notom-Bullfrog Road in southern Capitol Reef National Park. GEOLOGY OF THE CLEVELAND QUADRANGLE, BEARPAW MOUNTAINS, BLAINE COUNTY, MONTANA By EGBERT GEORGE SCHMIDT, W. T. PECORA, and B. C. HEARN, JR. ABSTRACT The Cleveland iuinute quadrangle includes part of the northeastern Bear- paw Mountains and part of the bordering plains. About 15 percent of theCited by:

Sequence stratigraphy of typical Barnett, Woodord, Marcellus and Mowry siliciclastic marine shales in U.S. Original data of Barnett shale, Woodford shale, . Abstract. This book presents papers on petroleum geology. Topics considered include the origin of hydrocarbons in carbonate rocks, hydrocarbon geochemistry, the generation and migration of hydrocarbons in the Upper Cretaceous Period, a comparison of carbonate and shale source rocks, the use of thiophenic organosulfur compounds in characterizing crude oils derived from . The Dawson Arkose is a geologic formation in the Denver Basin that underlies the Denver area in is characterized by alternating beds of arkosic sandstone and mudstone. The Dawson Arkose contains plant remains and other nonmarine fossils, and hosts aquifers that are important sources of water for the area.. Stratigraphy. The Dawson Arkose consists of alluvial fan and Country: United States. The main body is not completely discussed. On the north side of the Uinta Mountains, the term Mancos not used. The Mowry Shale and Frontier Formations are recognized. The term Hilliard Shale is applied to rocks equivalent to the main body of the Mancos Group of the southern side of the Mountains.

Such shales may be referred to as uraniferous oil shales . During the past decade, unconventional shale and tight-sand gas plays have become an important supply of natural gas in the US, and now in shale oil as well. As a consequence, interest to assess and explore these plays is rapidly spreading worldwide.
