CA – DOGGR – All California oil and gas wells (development and prospect wells), enhanced-recovery wells, water-disposal wells, service wells (i.e. structure, observation, temperature observation wells), core-holes, and gas-storage wells, onshore and offshore (within three nautical miles of the coastline), located on state and private lands, are administered by California’s Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR). Data related to this activity can be accessed through DOGGR’s online resources. To obtain information on stimulated wells in California, however, datasets often have to be aggregated from multiple sources. Learn more
