Would you like to see the Marcellus as it appears in outcrop? Would you like to examine fracture patterns in outcrops of other black shales (Geneseo and Utica), as well as in the carbonates of the Northern Appalachian Basin? You’ll have an opportunity to visit these, and more, in the AAPG’s newest field trip, “Fractures and Tectonics of the Northern Appalachian Basin,” June 21-25, in upstate New York. In addition, you’ll learn about fracturing and faulting in the northern Appalachian Basin sedimentary units (including black shales), and about the tectonics that controlled the evolution of the Appalachian Basin in NYS. What you’ll learn could revolutionize your approach to shale gas and fractured reservoirs.
