Exploration and development of the Late Ordovician Trenton Limestone has occurred in New York State since the late 1800's. From the early days of exploration to the present, the Trenton has proven to be an elusive target for developers. However, with renewed interest and current activity, coupled with improved drilling and completion techniques, the Trenton Limestone in New York may yet prove to be an important reservoir.
