Notes on methods

For all counts, wells with missing lease names are not counted, as they tend to be junk.

After the first Total column, the next four columns count wells with a status of "OIL", "O&G", "GAS", or "CBM" where they have at least one date (spud, completed, plug) that is not NULL. The next column counts wells with a status of "OIL-P&A", or "O&G-P&A", "GAS-P&A", or "CBM-P&A". The "-P&A" flag means the well was completed successfully but has since been plugged.

The next column counts wells with a status of "D&A". After that is a column that counts all of these wells: "CATH", "EOR", "SWD", "WATER", "INJ", "CATH-P&A", "EOR-P&A", "SWD-P&A", "WATER-P&A", "INJ-P&A". The "Intents" column is wells that have an intent to drill filed but no other activity has occurred.

"Current UIC forms" column is a count of wells where a 2016 Annual Report on Fluid Injection and Enhanced Recovery form has been filed. More info on UIC forms can be found here. Authoritative data on injection wells should be received from the Kansas Corporation Commission.

After that is a column of wells flagged as oil, gas, etc., but they have no spud, completion, or plug dates. Finally, the Remainder column is the difference between the total number of wells and the columns flagged with red asterisk.
