Title: Recent Development in Illinois with Discussion of Producing Formations Below McClosky "Sand"

Author(s): Alfred H. Bell (2), George V. Cohee (2)


The recent discovery of Devonian oil production in the old Sandoval field has focused attention on Devonian possibilities in the Illinois basin. As yet there has been relatively little testing of pre-Ste. Genevieve formations in the region. This paper reviews the known occurrences in Illinois of oil in the Mississippian below the Ste. Genevieve and in the Devonian, Silurian, and Ordovician systems.

A brief statement regarding developments in Illinois during 1938 and up to the early part of March, 1939, is included.
