Florida Oil & Gas Data

Florida interactive oil & gas map

Illinois interactive oil and gas map - with fields, apis, cores, logs, contours, etc marked. Nicely done but production data is not available.

Illinois well database - An Oracle Java 7 application.  Difficult (or impossible) to get running.  It now appears to have vanished and cannot be found.  There is also a Well Permit database but you have to know what month you want.

Indiana Dept of Natural Resources - Oil & Gas data

Kansas Digital Petroleum Atlas - field summaries,  geology, cores, maps, etc.  Ambitious plan but looks like they stopped in 1999,  except the field map below appears current.

Louisiana SONRIS well mapping system

Louisiana DNR on line production and well information  - more difficult now.  Direct links to Sonris Lite with Well Serial Number. to Sonris Lite with API number

Louisiana DNR document images - a variety of stuff including well logs, regulatory etc.  (Turn off your pop-up blocker)  Know serial number first and check the "associated documents" box to get the whole well file

Louisiana DNR Glossary of terms

Michigan Oil & Gas database - Dept of Environmental Quality.

Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement  Also field reserves data or might be better production and lease data here

Mississippi on line production and well information -2010 old system, summary capable - some data also on DEQ Geology Dept (scout images) and easier to work with -  see geological survey lists

Mississippi production and well information - new system after April 2010.  

Mississippi new mapping system - Looks like a similar system to Nebraska's .  Better with MS Explorer.

Mississippi field maps, by county - color coded by formation - 2001

Mississippi scout ticket and log images - recently much improved

Montana Production data - new online system is better but not great.  Has a map server.

Nebraska well and production data

New Mexico Oil Conservation Division

New Mexico Production Data (Go-Tech)

New Mexico Well Data

New York Oil and Gas Data

North Dakota well data - not much there unless you subscribe to premium ($175/yr) or basic ($50/yr) services

  North Dakota interactive map - new. Appears most useful options are only with Basic or Premium subscription

Ohio Dept of Natural Resources - Oil & Gas Division - Very informative Annual reports, Well database, Permits, Unconventional information

Ohio Oil & Gas Database - also a mapping application (link below) with access to scout tickets. Ohio Geological Survey has good current info on Utica, Marcellus and Point Pleasant.

Ohio DNR Mapping system

Ohio map of Estimated Ultimate Recovery (EUR) Study of the Utica / Pleasant Point Shale. July 2021

Oklahoma Geological Survey - data sources

Oklahoma Corporation Commission main page - you can access databases but it requires Java's Jinitiator and Internet Explorer (and a fix for Windows 7). The OCC makes it very difficult to get running.

Oklahoma Corporation Commission - OLD SYSTEM BEFORE 6/2010 - production data, sometimes flawed -Click on Oil & Gas Database and wait for Java app to load.

Oklahoma Corporation Commission - NEW SYSTEM AFTER 6/2010 - shows some promise as improved.  It is not obvious, but use the magnifying glass to display and expand results.

Oklahoma Corporation Commission - imaging data - well logs

Oklahoma Oil & Gas Data Files - injection, completions, production, operators, drilling intent, old waterfloods, etc.

Oklahoma Tax Commission Gross Production System - does not seem to be able to look up production, just file forms.  Free, but you will have to register.

Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection - Oil and Gas management - Production data, GIS mapping app, can search by API number. Apparently no completion details. There is an "IRIS" subscription avail. fm Geol Survey.

Pennsylvania Oil & Gas Mapping - well mapping and data

Estimated Ultimate Recovery (EUR) Study of 7,300 Marcellus Shale Wells in Pennsylvania. February 2021 Update

Pennsylvania map of Estimated Ultimate Recovery (EUR) Study of the Utica / Pleasant Point Shale. July 2021

Texas TRAIL system records - search all agencies - you can sometimes turn up oil and gas field documents here (TRAIL system)

Texas Production data - by well, lease, county and field - best to have RRC number and RRC district for well data

Texas Proration Schedules - by field (changed again - now in .txt format - the pdf were more useful), - OR by operator

Texas Field Rules (rules can also be found on the proration schedules or on the RRC Well Data site.

  Texas Drilling Permit system

  Texas completion query system - for wells after November 2009. (check document image system for old stuff)

  Texas RRC Well mapping system  Turn on Visibility  (upper left) of survey lines, pipelines, well logs, etc. Search API like "485-01752" without "42"

  Texas well log image system - for API searches use only the 8 digit County-Well API number. Also check the BEG's database (click far left arrow for search)

  Texas well log release lists in xls - a spreadsheet for each month.

  Texas RRC Document images -  Enter 3+5 digit API number without the state - ie County and 5 digit API number. (For newer completions use the Completion Query System above.)

  BEG Texas core, sample and log library - Texas Bureau of Economic Geology - searchable database and Google map selection. (click on the far left arrow to get search box)

  Texas RRC Hearing file  - Docketed hearings, new field applications, Rule 38s.  Not complete but it appears the RRC is adding old data.  

  Texas Operator contact list in xls - no longer a pdf file.

 Texas Operator database query - searchable database. You probably want the operator contact list above.

  Texas production data for "Pending" wells - ie not assigned a RRC number yet - you must have permit number or possibly the 8 digit API number

 Texas injection volumes - water, CO2, gas, etc - H-10 database - some data back to 1995. Be patient as the system sometimes runs slow.

  Texas Injection-disposal permits and document images - sometimes the injection application can be found.  Suggest search by Field Number -found on proration schedules and well data

 

Utah Production data, logs and whole well files in pdf - superb data, very accessible - the best State site I've seen

West Virginia - well data and logs

West Virginia map of Estimated Ultimate Recovery (EUR) Study of the Utica / Pleasant Point Shale. July 2021

Wyoming Oil & Gas Conservation Commission - main site.

Wyoming OGCC - the old data access page. - in some ways easier than Explorer. API searches use only County and Well - no dashes.

Wyoming OGCC - a new user's review of available data. API searches use only County and Well - no dashes.

Wyoming Oil & Gas Commission - New Data Explorer and logs, maps, documents.  Very comprehensive but not easy to figure out.
