Oil & Gas Activity in Louisiana

Click on the image below to explore our LA map of oil and gas extraction-related activities. Due to the large number of wells and associated infrastructure in LA, attempts were made to limit the results on this map to unconventional drilling efforts, specifically the Haynesville Shale, for production wells, pits, and inspections. All available storage and salt water disposal wells were included, because products from the Haynesville might be dispatched into one of these facilities.

85,562

Total Wells (As of Feb 2017)
