OIL & GAS

DATA REQUESTS

We provide energy datasets to support the study of fossil fuel risks and action towards clean energy solutions. In addition to datasets, we can provide figures and statistics about the oil and gas industry.

Are you having trouble finding the data you need to take action towards clean energy solutions? We provide energy datasets, make graphs, and calculate statistics to support this type of work. 

You can find data downloads and sources linked in blog posts and alongside corresponding maps on our website, but if there are energy datasets and questions you cannot find on your own, we’re happy to assist you. 

We can share datasets in different formats, including:

  • Spreadsheets (excel or google sheets)
  • Mapping files compatible with ArcGIS, such as shapefiles
  • Mapping files compatible with Google Earth, such as .kml 
  • Links to original data sources

Most of the data we use is publicly available. For a list of our common data sources, visit: https://www.fractracker.org/data/

We can create custom graphs and charts to display data.

Click the button below to request data, or if you’re not sure how we can help, you can schedule a brainstorming call with FracTracker to discuss options.

We can also provide figures and statistics about the oil and gas industry. Some examples of statistics that could support your clean energy campaigns include: how many oil and gas wells are in a county, how many wetlands does a pipeline cross, or approximately what percentage of the population near a proposed site have limited English proficiency. 

This type of information is a great way to strengthen testimony for public comments, inform your community about what’s at risk, and support your own research endeavors.
