Abstract

This report summarizes activities carried out by the Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG) during fiscal year (FY) 2014 for the National Coal Resources Data System State Cooperative Program (NCRDS project). In a continuation of the sampling strategy for measured vitrinite-reflectance (Ro) determination initiated 5 years ago (Hentz and others, 2009) and conducted during the following four years (Hentz and others, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014), this report provides a collection of oil-shale samples from the prolific Lower Permian Wolfcampian and lower Leonardian mudrocks and upper Leonardian Spraberry Formation of the Midland Basin in West Texas (Fig. 1).
