Part of the SpringerBriefs in Earth Sciences book series (BRIEFSEARTH)


The fact that commercial oil and gas production exists in Virginia and Tennessee and even far western Maryland bodes well for possible oil and gas accumulations in the southeastern United States because the areas share similar stratigraphic and structural geology. The oil and gas fields already discovered in the western Appalachian Basin proper can serve as models or analogs to similar features being discovered elsewhere in the central and eastern parts of overlooked sedimentary basin features of the southern Appalachian Mountain system.
