Revised from a previously published document, copyright 1984, SPE-AIME, Paper no. 12863, presented at the SPE/DOE/GRI Unconventional Gas Recovery Symposium, May 1984, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.


The Trenton Limestone in Northwestern Ohio has been targeted for hydrocarbon exploration and evaluation because it offers the possibility of good economic returns with low costs, good leasehold availability, and an opportunity to test modern reservoir stimulation technology.

Results of exploration efforts have shown that (1) geological high-grading of well site selection was needed, (2) there is a need for stimulation treatments designed to enhance production, (3) there is a marginal return on investment with current economics, and (4) gas pipeline construction should be delayed until larger reserves are found or until a more favorable gas marketing climate develops.
