Tier 3 data for Appalachian Basin sectors of New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia used in a Geothermal Play Fairway Analysis of opportunities for low-temperature direct-use applications of heat. It accompanies data and materials submitted as Geothermal Data Repository Submission "Natural Reservoir Analysis 2016 GPFA-AB" (linked below). Reservoir information are derived from oil and gas exploration and production data sets, or derived from those data based on further analysis. Data reported here encompass locations (horizontal and depth), geologic formation names, lithology, reservoir volume, porosity and permeability, and derived approximations of the quality of the reservoir.
These differ from the linked 2015 data submission in that this file presents data for New York that are comparable to those in the other two states. In contrast, the 2015 data available measured differing attributes across the state boundaries. Tier 3 data for natural sedimentary rock reservoirs documented during oil and gas exploration or development for New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia sectors of the Appalachian Basin. File format in .xlsx and conforms to Geothermal Data Repository Reservoirs Content Model.
