Illinois Basin

The Illinois Basin is a 54,000 square mile spoon shaped depression that extends from Mid-Western Illinois through parts of Indiana and south to the Kentucky-Tennessee State Line.  Oil & Gas Operations have been ongoing for the past 100 years and well over One-Billion Barrels of Oil have been produced.  Oil & Natural gas produced from the New Albany Shale is expected to be the next boom from the Mid-Continent Area.
