Ohio: East Canton field named CO2 candidate

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, July 18
– Between 76 million and 279 million bbl of additional oil could be recovered from East Canton oil field in eastern Ohio by carbon dioxide flooding, said a state geological survey report.

The field, discovered in 1947, has produced nearly 100 million bbl of oil and still has more than 1 billion bbl of oil in place.

East Canton field’s oil is in the Silurian Clinton formation on 175,000 acres in Carroll, Harrison, Stark, and Tuscarawas counties. It is the state’s largest still-producing oil field. Numerous other Clinton sandstone reservoirs have been discovered in the region.

Carbon dioxide would need to come from anthropogenic sources such as steel mills, power plants, cement kilns, or landfills, the report said.
