Assessment Year  2012
Reserves  38TCF undiscovered gas
Thickness  1,000 feet
Formation Details  The Utica Shale is a rock unit located a few thousand feet below the Marcellus Shale. It also has the potential to become an enormous natural gas resource. The Utica Shale is thicker than the Marcellus, it is more geographically extensive and it has already proven its ability to support commercial production. The potential source rock portion of the Utica Shale is extensive. In the United States it underlies portions of Kentucky, Maryland, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia and Virginia. It is also present beneath parts of Lake Ontario, Lake Erie and part of Ontario, Canada.
Notes  Estimates for Natural Gas in the Utica Shale Deposit Field ranges between 2 trillion cubic feet to up to a whopping 69 trillion cubic feet of Natural Gas.
