Exploration for fractured reservoirs in the non-porous biomicrite of the Trenton Limestone has taken place since 1910. Increased drilling since 1981 has doubled production from this structurally complex area of the Eastern Overthrust.
Figures & Tables
The Trenton Group (Upper Ordovician Series) of Eastern North America: Deposition, Diagenesis, and Petroleum
Regional facies for the Upper Ordovician Series (global classification) of eastern North America consist of clean (pure) carbonates, mixed carbonates and terrigenous clastics, shale, terrigenous clastics coarser than shale, and terrigenous clastics prograding over carbonates. The last facies is characteristic of the Upper Ordovician. Maps and cross sections for stages of the Upper Ordovician demonstrate the influence of regional tectonic events on the sedimentation pattern of these facies.
