An intriguing program is afoot to assess the hydrocarbon potential of the Niobrara in south-central South Dakota. The assessment program was initiated in 2012, when the American Indian Higher Education Consortium funded a cooperative education program between the Sinte Gleska University on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation in South Dakota and the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SDSM&T).

At a time when some operators are slowing production of unconventional resources, and as oil and gas prices continue to fall, three companies have high hopes for producing shale oil north of the Arctic Circle for the first time in petroleum history.

The title says it all: Determining Hydrocarbon Distribution Using Resistivity, Tuscaloosa Marine Shale, Southwestern Mississippi. The purpose of the study was to investigate the TMS Trend in southwestern Mississippi using electric logs and IHS’s proprietary Petra mapping software to document the structure, stratigraphy and hydrocarbon distribution.

Conventional hydrocarbon resources have been associated with pre-Devonian petroleum systems across the globe. Although individual accumulations can be quite significant, the relative importance of pre-Devonian-derived oils is limited compared to the global conventional resource-base. With growing interest in unconventional resources, the relative importance of these systems is expected to increase as plays develop.

I would like to suggest that far too much of the technical work purporting to guide exploration for petroleum is trivial, redundant and has little of use to offer toward finding new oil and gas accumulations. All geology is interesting; some geologic work is novel; damn little of the work we see is useful in finding new oil and gas fields!

The time-worn phrase "everything old is new again" is an apt description for much of the revved-up activity in the oil patch these days.

As the Bakken, Eagle Ford, Marcellus and other shale plays make national news, the Cane Creek reservoir might be the dark horse poised to emerge as another major shale play.

Some surprising findings bubbled up in a recent study of methane geochemistry in the Appalachian Basin. The findings could complicate the jobs of investigators trying to determine how stray methane gets into water wells.

The gas transport in organic-rich shales involves different length-scales, from organic and inorganic pores to macro- and macrofractures. In order to upscale the fluid transport from nanoscale (flow through nanopores) to larger scales (to micro- and macrofractures), multicontinuum methodology is planned to be used.
