Absolutely wonderful site. I was afraid I would have to go to "commercial source" to gather the data I needed for Kansas project. This site has been a terrific source.

Thank You !!!!!

The more I delve into your Web Site the more I am impressed. The KGS is to be commended for compiling a remarkable volume of useful and easily accessible data. Thank you for making my research easy.

We plan on drilling out from under surface January 2nd. Will probably be done with the vertical section of the hole on the 5th then drill the curve and have the 7" set by the 8th. Should be horizontal in the chert by the 10th. I'll contact you on the 6th or 7th to set up a time. I'm not sure what part of the well you want to view (I'm guessing the horizontal part using foam). Let me know.

Thanks for the map tip. I picked up the Pratt County 1:100,000 map and it is just the right size. I'll call Lawrence to get the non-folded prints. Thanks again.

By the way you have a good website. The oil/gas production by year is good-free-and fast! Is there a way to access monthly volumes or see what the last month input is? You have the fastest quick look at production cumulatives I've seen yet.

Thanks for the tip Tim. Went right to your excellent webpage and found what I was looking for. Kudos to whoever maintains this site.


Documented comments from personnel at different small independents. Names on request.

"The atlas gave me a start on the geology of producing formations and discerning which wells produce from these deeper formations. It also gave me a start on assessing the volume of oil and gas production per lease and per field. Having this information readily available saved about six weeks of my time." Using the atlas reduced the time to complete this task by more than 80%.

"The atlas gives me a jump start on an area. I know it’s a time saver."

"I saved at least three days of searching for literature on the petroleum geology of the area."

"Utilizing the Atlas prevented me from having to make a trip to Kansas (from Texas) to personally research the data base at the KCC."
