Where's PTTC?

This website is now a part of Appalachian Oil and Natural Gas Research Consortium. You can still access national and regional PTTC information from their main website or via the link below.

Oil and gas information for the Appalachian Region will continue to be found here. Please visit us again for a newly designed website. Pardon our mess in the process!

For further information, read the latest (and last) PTTC Appalchian Newsletter here (PDF, KB).

The original AONGRC webpage can still be accessed here.


AONGRC research is dedicated to the immediate and long range needs of the petroleum industry in the Appalachian region. The consortium includes the West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey, the Kentucky Geological Survey, the Pennsylvania Bureau of Topographical and Geological Survey, and the Ohio Geological Survey.

AONGRC programs enhance oil & gas production from marginal fields, develop new sources of shallow gas, develop deeper sources of natural gas, and map & expand our energy infrastructure.
