Updated Oil and Gas Well Data Available

WVGES Releases Update of Oil and Gas Well Data Publication

The West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey (WVGES) has released an update (01/25/10) to the digital publication of its oil and gas well data on DVD (see details about the original publication). Since this 01/25/10 version of the publication contains the entire database of more than 148,000 wells, new customers can obtain the entire current database from this release. Because each record in the files is date-stamped, customers who purchased earlier versions of the publication can distinguish those records in this updated version which have been added or modified since the previous releases.

Among the changes to the database since the previous version are the addition or modification of more than 117,000 data records to improve the quality of the data (see a more detailed summary about changes/modifications).


Cost to new customers is $495; cost to customers who already purchased an original version is $50. This includes delivery via first class U.S. mail; shipment via other means is available for an additional charge. Credit cards (VISA and MasterCard) are accepted.


Survey staff can still create customized database retrievals per a customer's specifications in order to make available smaller, more manageable files for those customers who don't need all of the well data. These customized "service requests" are available at a fee.
