  1. Activity and Potential of the Utica Shale in Pennsylvania John A. Harper Pennsylvania Geological Survey

  2. THE UTICA (and Point Pleasant) IN GENERAL

  3. COMPARISON OF UTICA TO UTICA/POINT PLEASANT

  4. HOW DEEP? STRUCTURAL CONTROLS? HOW THICK?

  5. DRILLING ACTIVITY What little there has been

  9. HOW MUCH WILL GEOLOGY AFFECT CURRENT ACTIVITY?

  10. GEOCHEMISTRY OF THE UTICA/POINT PLEASANT As much as we know or suspect
