Where does your well data come from?
We source our well data directly from the individual state resources including online published data, hard copy completion reports, hard copy production records and multiple other sources.
How do you standardize well data generally?
We use the PPDM (Professional Petroleum Data Management) model. By standardizing across the different well databases, we make the data much easier to work with, combine with other data, and analyze. We also standardize the values in columns, while also getting rid of null values and duplicates. We convert the data in our system to the standardized PPDM schema, with consistency across the dataset.
How do you deliver bulk data?
All bulk data is provided via SFTP as zip files of each county in the format of your choice using a pull model. End delivery is customizable with no extra costs.
How do I download your well data?
We use the “Secure File Transfer Protocol”, also called SFTP. This is supported in most traditional FTP clients and SSH client software.
When was your well data last updated?
Our well data is refreshed monthly.
What software can I use to work with your data?
Editing or working with most of our data requires software for working with geographic and geospatial data. There is free and open-source desktop software to work this kind of data called QGIS. We recommend GeoGraphix as our preferred software for well data.
What about Google Earth?
We provide KML/KMZ options for Google Earth and Google Earth Pro, but neither of those applications support editing our data, only viewing the data. If you need to make changes to the data you get from us, you will need a desktop application like QGIS discussed above.
How large is dataset?
The initial dataset will be large, upwards of 5GBs. Monthly updates are small and take relatively small amounts of time.
