Arizona: State places oil and gas well data online

The Arizona Geological Survey purchased software in 2011 with funding from the Rocky Mountain Carbon Capture and Sequestration Partnership to digitize Arizona well logs into LAS (log ASCII standard) format to aid analysis for carbon dioxide sequestration potential in Arizona.

The Arizona Geological Survey purchased software in 2011 with funding from the Rocky Mountain Carbon Capture and Sequestration Partnership to digitize Arizona well logs into LAS (log ASCII standard) format to aid analysis for carbon dioxide sequestration potential in Arizona.

The digitizing effort focused on deep wells across northeastern Arizona including wells that penetrated Precambrian basement and wells in the oil and gas fields with the highest cumulative production. The AZGS developed a user-friendly web application to make the digitized well data available online to facilitate the widest possible access and use of the data.

The search and download map includes more than 1,100 well folders, 2,500 scanned tiff images of well logs, and the newly digitized LAS data. The Arizona Oil and Gas Well Viewer is accessed under the Online Data tab on the State of Arizona Oil and Gas Conservation Commission website.

The viewer is user friendly and makes it easy to access and download oil and gas data in Arizona including well files, scanned tiff images of logs, and log ASCII standard (LAS) digital data. The oil and gas data are useful in a broad range of investigations including oil and gas, geothermal, mining, environmental, and hydrologic studies.
