1. Holcomb, Andrew. INITIAL MICROSEISMIC RECORDINGS AT THE ONSET OF UNCONVENTIONAL HYDROCARBON DEVELOPMENT IN THE ROME TROUGH, EASTERN KENTUCKY.

Degree: 2017, University of Kentucky

The Cambrian Rogersville Shale is a part of a hydrocarbon system in the Rome Trough of eastern Kentucky and West Virginia that can only be produced unconventionally. In Kentucky, the Rogersville Shale ranges in depth from ~1,800 to ~3,700 m below the surface with the crystalline basement ~1,000 m lower than the formation’s base. Baseline Rome Trough microseismicity data were collected, focusing on wastewater injection wells and recently completed and planned unconventional hydrocarbon test wells in the Rogersville Shale, using thirteen broadband seismic stations installed between June, 2015 and June, 2016 and existing University of Kentucky and central and eastern United States network stations. In addition, the network’s minimum detection threshold, the magnitude at which the theoretical signal exceeds the noise by a factor of 3 between 1 and 20 Hz for at least 4 stations, was estimated for the project area. Thirty-eight local and regional events were located and magnitudes were calculated for each event. No events were proximal to operating disposal or hydrocarbon test wells, nor did any occur in the eastern Kentucky’s Rome Trough. The minimum detection threshold varies between 0.4 and 0.7 Mw from 0000-1100 UTC and 0.6 to 0.9 Mw from 1100-2300 UTC.

2. Hickman, John Bibb, Jr. STRUCTURAL EVOLUTION OF AN INTRACRATONIC RIFT SYSTEM; MISSISSIPPI VALLEY GRABEN, ROUGH CREEK GRABEN, AND ROME TROUGH OF KENTUCKY, USA.

Degree: 2011, University of Kentucky

As indicated by drilling and geophysical data, the Mississippi Valley Graben, the Rough Creek Graben, together with the Rome Trough of eastern Kentucky and West Virginia, are fault-bounded graben structures filled with as much as 27,000 feet of Early to Middle Cambrian sediments. Detailed regional mapping of Cambrian and younger strata within and surrounding these structures indicates that they formed contemporaneously. The proximity of these structures suggests they developed within the same regional stress fields and tectonic environments. These three structures are mechanically and kinematically connected, and formed part of a single continent-scale rift system produced during the breakup of Rodinia and the separation of Laurentia from Amazonia. Data including stratigraphic tops from 1,764 wells, interpretations of 106 seismic profiles, aeromagnetic and gravity survey analysis, and mapped surface geology and structures were used within this project. Seven stratigraphic packages resolvable in both geophysical well logs and reflection seismic profiles were mapped in the subsurface across parts of Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, and Tennessee. These stratigraphic units were then analyzed through structure maps, isopachous maps, and across 12 regional well-based cross sections. Detailed analysis of thickness patterns of seven major stratigraphic packages was used to identify the locations and timing of major fault movements within the study area. The regional patterns of fault movements through time were used to investigate how the structures evolved in response to the tectonic episodes in southeastern Laurentia during the Cambrian through Devonian Periods. Active rifting of the Precambrian crystalline bedrock began by the Early Cambrian, and resulted in a thick deposit of Reelfoot Arkose and Eau Claire Formation within the Mississippi Valley and Rough Creek Grabens, and the Rome Formation and Conasauga Group within the Rome Trough. Major tectonic extension ended by the Late Cambrian, prior to the deposition of the Knox Supergroup. Counter-clockwise rotation of the regional sigma-1 stress field between the Middle Ordovician and Early Mississippian (Taconic through Acadian Orogenies) resulted in the reactivation of varying sets of preexisting faults through time. The locations, orientations, and timing of these active faults relate to the deep architecture of the rift system.

3. Smith, Casey. The Devonian West Falls Formation, implications of sedimentation controlled by preexisting structures, West Virginia.

Degree: 2012, East Carolina University

The Devonian (Frasnian) aged West Falls Formation in West Virginia contains gamma-ray signatures that have been interpreted to indicate sedimentation within a foreland (foredeep) basin. The West Falls Formation includes the Angola Member, and the underlying Rhinestreet Member. The Angola Member is an organic-poor, silty facies that ranges in thickness from 15 to 60 meters.   The Rhinestreet Member gamma-ray signatures are indicative of an organic-rich shale facies and are easily recognized throughout the basin in West Virginia. One- to three- meter(s) thick organic-rich units interbedded with organic-poor siltstone facies characterize the top of the member. A continuous 12 to 18-meter thick sequence in the middle of the member occurs across the entire western geographic region of West Virginia. Organic-rich beds coupled with intertonguing organic-poor units and/or siltstone occur in the lower part of the member and increase in thickness towards the paleo-geographic foredeep and Central West Virginia Arch.  Multiple orogenic periods have shaped the Appalachian Foreland Basin, and the successive depositional patterns of Devonian strata are related to underlying basement structures formed during earlier orogenies. The Rhinestreet Member of the West Falls Formation in West Virginia contains gamma signatures that spatially coincide with the Central West Virginia Arch blocks created during the Ordovician, and later reactivated in the Acadian Orogeny. Past research has suggested that the Rome Trough provided the necessary accommodation space for Devonian organic-rich shales. However, this study shows that there is closer spatial relationship between organic-rich shales and the Central West Virginia Arch blocks, as opposed to the Rome Trough.
