Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG) Master Well Dataset

This file contains consolidated well records from the Bureau of Economic Geology’s Integrated Core and Log Database supplemented with additional records from the Texas Railroad Commission Files and donated well log files from a number of private and public agencies. Important information for each well includes the API number, latitude and longitude location for the well head, well depth and bottom-hole temperature measured at the time of drilling. Where available the formation at the total well depth is included as well as additional information such as multiple bottom hole measurements at different depths, formation characteristics and well production information. Reported bottom-hole temperatures are corrected using a modified Harrison method as described in Blackwell, Richards and Stepp (2010). Efforts have been made to enter the data as reported on the original well logs or scout sheets and to identify and remove obviously anomalous data points; however careful assessment by the user should be exercised. This dataset represents an extensive compilation of oil and gas wells bottom-hole temperatures and valuable well to well properties that was not previously available in an easily accessible format.
