Deep, saline, water-bearing reservoirs offer the greatest potential for geological sequestration of large volumes of CO2. In the Midwestern United States, the deepest most significant saline reservoir is the Cambrian Mt. Simon Sandstone. The Mt. Simon Sandstone is commonly used for natural gas storage in relatively shallow parts of the Illinois Basin. By analogy, the data from these storage projects indicate that the unit is a heterogeneous reservoir with a large potential sequestration capacity. The Mt. Simon Sandstone consists of fine to coarse sandstone with some interbeds of gray shale. Laterally discontinuous shale and siltstone interbeds in...
