With respect to the vital work of maintaining and increasing much needed petroleum reserves within the continental United States, the Southeast is intriguing because it has been under-explored for many years at the expense of far more promising areas such as the Gulf Coast. While critics may contend that the overall geology of the Southeastern United States is unfavorable for commercial accumulations of hydrocarbons, it remains to be answered the occurrence and sourcing of the oil seeps in Georgia and the oil and gas shows reported in wells drilled in North Carolina, to name a few. This volume introduces new evidence and compiles and re-examines data which argues for increased oil and gas exploration in the region
