Alabama Production data

Alaska Oil & Gas Conservation Commission - data here but difficult to find

Alaska Oil & Gas Conservation Commission- Web app for well data. Suggest trying "Well Detailed Info", then "Narrow results"

Alaska Oil & Gas Conservation Commission Laserfische WebLink well data and documents. Whole well file docs in pdf can be generated but they are large.

Alaska OGCC - digital well log list (xls) You can fill out a form requesting logs not on the list. They can send the whole data file by FTP

Alaska DNR Division of Oil and Gas - not much useful information there. Try above or http://www.petroak.com/welllogs.html

Alaska Division of Oil and Gas - a few pdf maps

Alaska Geologic Data Index (AGDI)

Alberta  CANADA well license (permit) data and spud report - from Enerlead The POIM blog

Arkansas Production Data - new system

    Arkansas document image system - under development but good data.  Watch for multiple page documents.  For API searches, include * at end - ie 0309110069*

California Production data

Colorado Production data  - COGIS - select Production or Facilities etc.

Colorado GIS mapping system - new system.

Colorado hearing files - very comprehensive back at least to 1957.  Select ORDERS on the left side, then search by Field etc.

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.

Kansas - Interactive Oil & Gas Field Map - links to all kinds of field and well data including logs, production, etc.  A good place to start searching.

Kansas Production data - select Lease Production in center panel, then look up by API

Kansas Corporation Commission - Oil & Gas Division - search well logs, records, etc.

Kansas Geological Society - an impressive digital library, the largest collection of data for Kansas - completion, core, logs, etc.

Kentucky DNR - Division of Oil & Gas

Kentucky Well Data including production but extremely difficult to use- (KY Geological Survey)

Louisiana DNR on line production and well information  -  the old Sonris Lite worked fine, but with the recent changes it is much more difficult to access the data.  Direct link to Sonris Lite - with Well Serial 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 - good luck.  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.  Recommend going to "Data Mining" (upper left) and search by Name or 10 digit API number - without dashes.

Mississippi new mapping system - Looks like a similar system to Nebraska's but ran very slow and buggy.  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 - (not working)

Nebraska well and production data

Nebraska data mining GIS system - impressive mapping application with clickable well information - hover over a well and you'll get a scout ticket, etc.

New Mexico Production Data (PTTC)

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

Ohio DNR Mapping system

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 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.

South Dakota oil and gas data - and a map based application

Texas data

Texas Railroad Commission - Railroad Commission main page

Texas RRC Online Research central site 

Texas RRC well data - this site assembles click-able links to many of the sites below including images, GIS viewer production , rules , plugging etc.

- choose oil or gas proration schedules then search by field or other item.

- will list wells with links to other data. Don't miss the images option next to the API number or lease number.

Texas Central Online Data Query system - permits, production, proration, etc

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 (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. (check document image system for old stuff)

  Texas NEW RRC Well mapping system - New October 2013 much improved.  Turn on Visibility  (upper left) of survey lines, pipelines, well logs, etc.

  Texas OLD RRC Well mapping system - OLD mapping program.  Log images and other documents are sometimes available - select "Identify" on the map tools then click on the well to get a list of images.

  Texas well log image system - for API searches use only the 8 digit County-Well API number. Also check the BEG's IGOR database

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

  Texas RRC Document images - Choose "Oil & Gas well records".   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 (IGOR) and Google map selection.

  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

Wyoming Production data (WOGCC) and logs, maps, documents.  Very comprehensive but becoming more difficult to use - some data requires MS Internet Explorer (IE)
