Funding from the National Science Foundation, the Gas Technology Institute/RPSEA and industry partners has allowed this group to develop a multifaceted study on gas from the Michigan Basin and Forest City Basin, drawing from tools common to aqueous, isotope and organic geochemistry as well as environmental and molecular microbiology. High Temperature Electronics— One Key to Deep Gas Resources Large resources of unconventional gas are locked up in tight-gas sands, shales and coalbed methane throughout the Gulf of Mexico, Rocky Mountains, Texas, Oklahoma and Appalachian Basin, but to obtain this resource, there are a number of hurdles to overcome.
