Small Independent Producer/Consultant - I have been
in awe over the usefulness and detailed information available
on your Digital Petroleum Atlas Web page. As a result, I obtained
a copy of the USGS CD-ROM study which was the source for the
Anadarko Basin data since my main interest is in Oklahoma's petroleum
I have been disappointed to find that the USGS data is in
a format that I can only be viewed and not printed or saved to
file (everything is controlled by a very rigid .exe file). I'm
writing to you to ask if you can offer me any advice or hints
on how to turn this CD-ROM data into a more useful package such
as you have successfully done with your fantastic website?
Geologist with Small Independent Producer - I am working
on developing an exploration program for our company in Kansas.
In particular I want historical production information for the
Arbuckle in Kansas. My primary goal is to develop a statistical
analysis to determine the mean field size and a range of field
size distribution. Ideally the data set will contain the following
information: 1. cum oil/gas production 2. number of wells in
field 3. areal extent of field (acres) 4. depth of production.
The information on the Digital Petroleum Atlas was a big help.
Oil and Gas Consultant - Great Job! I wish all states
had this data available.

Petroleum Atlas. This is the kind of information I've been hoping
for from KGS and PTTC. Can't wait for you to start on other counties
(like Lane and Ness for example hint, hint). Keep up the great
