Midwest Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership (MRCSP)
Interactive Mapping Launch Page
BRIEF OVERVIEW OF THE MRCSP PROJECT
The MRCSP has been established to assess the technical potential, economic viability, and public acceptability of carbon sequestration within its region. It is one of seven regional partnerships established by the DOE across the U.S. as part of an overall DOE strategy to develop robust cost-effective options for mitigating CO2 emissions that contribute to climate change.
The MRCSP region consists of seven contiguous states: Indiana , Kentucky , Maryland , Michigan , Ohio , Pennsylvania , and West Virginia . A group of leading universities, state geological surveys, nongovernmental organizations and private companies, led by Battelle, has been assembled to carry out this important research.
For more information please visit the link to the MRCSP Homepage located at the top of the interactive map.

The information presented herein for oil and gas fields and wells in Ohio has been obtained primarily from well card records on file with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Geological Survey. Additional data for more recent wells (since 2001) is obtained from the Division of Mineral Resources Management.
While the information presented herein is periodically updated as new information becomes available, the Division of Geological Survey estimates that there may be as many as 40,000 wells in Ohio for which the Division has no identified/located record.
