Summary
Abstract: The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) estimated volumes of undiscovered oil and gas
resources that may underlie Big South Fork National Recreation Area and Obed
Wild and Scenic River in Kentucky and Tennessee. Applying the results of
existing assessments of undiscovered resources from three assessment units in
the Appalachian Basin Province and three plays in the Cincinnati Arch Province
that include these land parcels, the USGS allocated approximately (1) 16
billion cubic feet of gas, 15 thousand barrels of oil, and 232 thousand barrels
of natural gas liquids to Big South Fork National Recreation Area; and (2) 0.5
billion cubic feet of gas, 0.6 thousand barrels of oil, and 10 thousand barrels
of natural gas liquids to Obed Wild and Scenic River. These estimated volumes
of undiscovered resources represent potential volumes in new undiscovered
fields, but do not include potential additions to reserves within existing
fields.

Report consists of 10 pages, including three figures and two tables.
