WVGES Releases Update of Oil and Gas Well Publication

The West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey (WVGES) has released an update (4/4/2019) to the digital publication of its oil and gas well data on DVD (DDS-5: WVGES Oil and Gas Well Data for West Virginia; see details about the original publication). Since this updated version of the publication contains the entire database of more than 153,000 wells, new customers can obtain the entire current database from this release. But because each record in the files is date-stamped, customers who purchased earlier versions of the publication can easily distinguish those records in this updated version which have been added or modified since previous releases.

Fields were added in the structure of the OWNCMP and PROD tables this year. More than 96,000 records were added or updated in all nine of the tables (see a more detailed summary about changes/modifications in the 2019 release). The database contains more than 3,340,000 data records.


Cost to new customers is $1,000 plus shipping and handling plus 6% sales tax; cost to customers who already purchased an original version is $100 plus shipping and handling plus 6% sales tax. Normal shipping is by first class U.S. mail; shipment by other means is available for an additional charge. Credit cards (VISA and MasterCard) are accepted.
