Exploration of Silurian-Niagaran pinnacle reefs is discussed. Recent discoveries have extended the reef belt into new areas in the western and northeastern parts of Michigan's lower peninsula, and the results of exploration in the northeastern part of the reef belt indicate that some reef characteristics in that area are not similar to those of the rest of the belt.

Niagaran reefs have been the main source of oil and gas production in the state of Michigan for the past three decades. Inthe reefs produced about 28 million barrels of oil (82 percent of the state’s production) and almost billion cubic feet of gas (94 percent of the state’s production).Cited by: 8.

Decades before Abraham Gesner's invention of kerosene and the drilling of Canada's first commercial oil well at Oil Springs in southwest Ontario, natural gas seeping from Silurian aged carbonates was a major tourist attraction at Niagara Falls. The Lower Silurian "Clinton"-Medina sandstone play is one of the most significant gas plays in the Appalachian basin.

Producing fields are located in a broad trend extending from northeastern Kentucky north into Ohio to the Canadian portion of Lake Erie and southwestern Ontario, and into northwestern Pennsylvania and western New York.
