This is a compilation of oil and gas well permits, completion reports, electric logs, mud logs, sundry reports, and production data housed at Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology (NBMG). Also included in this compilation are most of the petroleum-related bulletins, reports, and maps produced by NBMG. This 2011 update includes all oil and gas well files that have been scanned by NBMG over the last five years. They are in a variety of formats such as PDF, TIFF, JPEG, and software-specific formats and are provided in the format in which they were scanned. Some files are duplicated in different formats. Many of these files, especially the log files, are very large. For example, some of the full-color log files in TIFF format are several hundred megabytes in size. You may need special viewing software for some of these files.

This update includes the efforts of a major scanning project, just completed, by the AAPG-OSU GIS Consortium which was funded by Oklahoma State University (OSU) alumni T. Boone Pickens. Incorporated in the update are all of the oil and gas well files that had not previously been converted to an electronic format; this included over half of the paper oil and gas well records housed at NBMG. The brunt of this scanning effort was performed during Summer 2011 by two visiting OSU students and employees of OSU Cartography Services: Siewe Siewe Siewe (PhD candidate) and Mary Niles (BS Geology student).

The digital files may not be complete for each well and are in the same format as provided by OSU, well operator, or vendor. The files are current to August 29, 2011.
