Michigan Oil and Gas Data Miner

Contact: Office of Oil, Gas, & Minerals 517-582-3446

The Michigan Oil and Gas Data Miner is being phased in to replace the former Oil and Gas Database.  Please refer to the Michigan Oil and Gas Data Miner User Guide, or contact the Office of Oil, Gas, and Minerals with questions.

The Michigan Oil and Gas Data Miner web application gives users access to oil and gas related data through a search and map based interface.  This interface features simple and advanced search features, along with the ability to view data at multiple levels (bulk or detailed).

The web application features a three-pane interactive display. In the Search pane, key word entry returns results matching those criteria for multiple entity types (e.g., wells, permits, companies, etc.). An advanced search is available for users who need more specific searching capabilities. The Map pane offers a selection of wells in a simplified GIS. Clicking a result in the Search pane moves the map and fills the Details pane. Details are reported through clickable links and to sub tabs to see more detailed information. Users can export data in csv, Excel or KML file formats allowing users to bring data back to their computer for further analysis. The Oil and Gas Data Miner is work in progress and additional functionality and data will become available over time.
