    Geophysics and its Role in Appalachian Basin Oil and Gas Exploration and Development

    Joel Star
    EQT Production

    Abstract: The Appalachian Basin, as an oil and gas province, runs from southern New York State to Tennessee. Since the 1970s, geophysics has played an important role in allowing for enhanced exploitation of the oil and gas resources in this region. Initial efforts were limited to mostly gravity and 2D seismic but recently, with focus on the shales, horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, 3D seismic along with micro-seismic and distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) are playing an increasingly important role in improving hydrocarbon extraction. This presentation reviews the relationship of geophysics to the boom and bust cycle of hydrocarbon development in the Appalachian Basin over the last 47 years.
