Title: Oil and Gas Possibilities in the Arkansas Ozarks

Author(s): Carey Croneis (2)


Analyses of coals from northern Arkansas have made it possible to construct a new isocarb map of the entire Ozark region. This map throws light upon the oil and gas possibilities of the Arkansas Ozarks, an area which has been condemned by most geologists and avoided by the larger companies. A complete stratigraphic table for northern Arkansas is included, and the depth to the crystalline basement is indicated by well logs. A consideration of possible source and reservoir rocks, surface indications, and structural conditions leads to the conclusion that the gas possibilities are fairly good. Oil also may be obtained, but commercial production is not probable, and large pools are practically impossible.
