Exploration and development of the Late Ordovician Trenton Limestone has occurred in New York State since the late 1800s. From the early days of exploration to the present, the Trenton has proven to be an elusive target for developers. However, with renewed interest and current activity, coupled with improved drilling and completion techniques, the Trenton Limestone in New York may yet prove to be an important reservoir.
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.
