Abstract

Eastern Kentucky in 8 years has become the most important gas-producing area east of Mississippi River. Most favorable results, with a very small percentage of dry holes, have been obtained from the “Brown carbonaceous shales” of Devonian age, because of the physical effect of shooting the entire 400–600 feet of shale with an explosive mixture consisting of 80 per cent gelatin.

This article describes the geological and physical conditions which control the gas industry of this section.
