Abstract For the purpose of detailed documentation and inclusion in the National Geological Model, this report describes the five stratigraphic surfaces and 19 faults which formed the geological framework for the BGS-DECC Midland Valley shale resource estimation (Monaghan, 2014). The model was made by integration of seismic, well, borehole, mining and map data and a small component of the previous Midland Valley regional model (Monaghan, 2013). The modelled surfaces and accompanying report are available for download from the DECC website ( and are copyright DECC 2014. The volumetric grids, cut-off surface, maturity-depth surface, percentage shale and Total Organic Carbon maps used to calculate gross rock volumes and net shale volumes for the resource estimation are not included in this report or accompanying model files.
