Updated Oil and Gas Well Data Available

WVGES Releases Update of Oil and Gas Well Publication

The West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey (WVGES) has released an update (5/2/2024) to the digital publication of its oil and gas well data as a secure download or on DVD (DDS-5: WVGES Oil and Gas Well Data for West Virginia; see details about original publication). Since this updated version of the publication contains the entire database of more than 154,000 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.

More than 91,000 records were added or updated in all ten of the tables (see a more detailed summary about changes/modifications in the 2024 release). The database contains more than 3,900,000 data records.


Cost to new customers is $1,000 plus 6% sales tax; cost for the update to customers who previously purchased the database is $100 plus 6% sales tax. The publication is available in two forms: as a secure download, or as a DVD at an additional small shipping and handling charge. Normal shipping is by U.S. mail; shipment by other means is available for an additional charge. Credit cards (VISA and MasterCard) are accepted.
