Prospective Areas for New Oil and Gas Exploration and Current and Future Developments
The Marcellus shale resource play is being actively drilled and developed in western Virginia and western Maryland. The Conasauga and Floyd shale sequences/equivalents exist in Georgia. The Floyd/Neal shale sequence is productive in Alabama. East Tennessee and northern Alabama produce oil and gas and need more exploration. The Chattanooga shale in Tennessee is a prolific oil source rock. Unconventional shale gas potential from the Chattanooga shale in Tennessee is a strong possibility.
