The Energy Resources Program conducts research and assessments to advance the understanding of the Nation’s energy resources.

We study processes critical to the formation, accumulation, occurrence and alteration of geologically based energy resources; prepare resource assessments; and evaluate the environmental and socioeconomic effects of energy resource occurrence, production and use.

The Upper Devonian Kettle Point black shale of southern Ontario is poorly exposed. Structural maps prepared from the data of numerous wells show that the upper surface of the formation has low regular relief, and that the lower surface reflects domes in the Middle Devonian and also local subsidence of the Devonian rocks due to solution of salt in the Silurian Salina Formation.

Age: Middle Ordovician Period Distribution: West-central Arkansas, Ouachita Mountains; southern Oklahoma Geology: The Womble Formation is mostly black shale with thin layers of limestone, silty sandstone, and some chert.

Some green shales are interbedded with the black shales, but less so than in the Mazarn Shale. Cleavage, at an angle to bedding, frequently displays ribboned cleavage surfaces. Open-File Report Contaminants in fish and shellfish in the Stillaguamish River and Port Susan marine areas, WashingtonFact Sheet   A second effort, by Gruy Federal, Inc., in support of a five-well test program of the Devonian shales, found that the initial performance of Devonian shale wells was similar to the production curve from a traditional low-porosity (–%), low-permeability (– md), low-pressure ( psi) gas well producing according to the laws.The Annual Report series was established in to publish both administrative reports and results of geological investigations.

Reports in the series include information on the geology of Iowa's counties, summary assessments of Iowa's mineral resources (coal, gypsum, sand and gravel, etc.) and summary reports on Iowa's water resources.
