The graphic below shows a generalized geologic column of southern Illinois with formal stratigraphic Formation names in all capital letters, and oil producing zones and informal names in red. Information on the oil producing zones and informal names in Illinois shown on this graphic can be found by clicking on their corresponding names on the image, or in the alphabetical listing of names below the geologic column. Both links go to the Economic importance section of the corresponding formal geologic unit.

For example – the 'Ohara' oil producing zone can be found on the geologic column within the Ste. Genevieve, and in the alphabetical listing below. Clicking on either will go to the Economic importance section of the geologic unit that the ‘Ohara’ resides within. In this case the text for that section is as follows: “'Ohara' is an informal name applied to producing zones in the Karnak Limestone Member of the Ste. Genevieve Limestone.” This means that the 'Ohara' oil producing zone is found within the Karnak Limestone Member, which is within the Ste. Genevieve Limestone (Formation).

Not all oil producing zones and informal names have Member level designations, but all have Formation level designations.

For example the 'Benoist' oil producing zone reads as follows: “'Benoist' is an informal name applied to producing zones in the Yankeetown Sandstone”. This means that the 'Benoist' oil producing zone is found within the Yankeetown Sandstone (Formation).
