Frequently-anticipated questions:


What does this data set describe?

Title: kyog_1z
Abstract:
Shape file of oil and gas well identification, location, and completion data for Kentucky
Supplemental_Information:
This shape file was extracted from the main Kentucky Oil and Gas Well Records database. Basic documentation for the data in this file is available in the supplied html file: ogwells.html (open with a Web browser). Scanned images of oil and gas well data on file for these wells can be viewed on the Web at <http://kgs.uky.edu/kgsweb/DataSearching/OilGas/OGSearch.asp>.

Programming implemented by Bryan Bunch of the EPPC Cabinet, Frankfort, has enabled automatic extraction of the data from the Kentucky Geological Survey SQL data server. As a result of his work, this data set can (and will) be updated on a more timely basis. Please check the file kyog_info.txt for the date the shape file was created.

The shape file is provided in two versions:

1) kyog_dd, projection is decimal degrees of latitude and longitude, NAD83 2) kyog_1z, projection is feet, Kentucky State Plane Single Zone, NAD83

The wells in this distribution include only those wells for which a complete Carter coordinate location is available; that is, only wells for which latitude and longitude can be calculated. For most areas in Kentucky there exist additional wells for which we have insufficient location data to determine latitude and longitude. To obtain data for wells for which only the county, 7.5-minute quadrangle, or partial Carter coordinate are known, copies of the electronic data must be obtained. You can explore and download these data at the Oil and Gas Well Search service, <http://kgs.uky.edu/kgsweb/DataSearching/OilGas/OGResults.asp>.

Well locations in this shape file are based on the best available location. The Kentucky Geological Survey does not have staff to field check well locations. With the adoption of Kentucky Revised Statute 353 (1960), the location of a well is determined by a licensed land surveyor who prepares and submits a plat showing that well location. Wells are often drilled off the permitted location for a variety of reasons. For wells drilled prior to 1960, the Kentucky Geological Survey relies on a map collection that includes compay lease maps, field work maps, and many others. Critical well locations should be verified in the field by the user.

  3. What similar or related data should the user be aware of?


How reliable are the data; what problems remain in the data set?

  1. How well have the observations been checked?

    Every effort has been made so the data in this distribution best reflects the drilling records on file at the Kentucky Geological Survey. Critical information should be verified by consulting those records; scanned images are available online at kgs.uky.edu/kgsweb/DataSearching/OilGas/OGSearch.asp. Please report any discrepancies to the Kentucky Geological Survey.

  2. How accurate are the geographic locations?

    Horizontal accuracy is a function of the quality of map data available at the Kentucky Geological Survey. Historic well location maps and literature that do not meet current standards are often used in conjunction with modern topographic maps to determine a location. Beginning with the adoption of KRS 353 in 1960, a well location plat prepared by a licensed land surveyor is required to be submitted with an application for a permit to drill a well. The permitted well location may not correspond to the location "as drilled"; Kentucky has no requirement for filing "as drilled" location plats. Most locations have not been field checked. A few locations have been field checked and location data derived from GPS are supplied in this file. In any case, the regulatory/administrative location remains the surveyed well location as shown on the plat.

  3. How accurate are the heights or depths?

  4. Where are the gaps in the data? What is missing?

    Data in this file are presented as is with no warranty either expressed or implied as to the completeness or accuracy of any location or well status. Data on file at the Kentucky Geological Survey are submitted by well operators under requirements established by Kentucky Revised Statute 353. The producing or abandoned status of any well is dependent on the completion type reported by the operator on the well log and completion report, on the availability of a plugging affidavit, and on other information or maps on file in the Public Information Center of the Kentucky Geological Survey.

    Some wells in the database have duplicate locations (sometimes more than one well at a given location). As in the case of workovers and deepenings of existing wells, this is intended. However, in the recent conversion of our database to new software on a new server, some valid locations were inadvertently duplicated to wells that have no location. These wells are being identified and corrected. Suspect invalid duplication if there are significantly more than four or five entries at a given location and the location is in the middle of a 1-minute or 5-minute Carter coordinate section or the middle of a 7.5-minute quadrangle. Your assistance in this matter is requested and appreciated.

  5. How consistent are the relationships among the observations, including topology?

    This shape file is consistent with digital data available at the Kentucky Geological Survey as of the date it was extracted.
