Our GIS Data Mining has a new tooltip features that makes it easier to
identify wells and allows you to access and print scout
tickets with fewer clicks. Just hover over a well for 1 or more seconds to see
the tooltip. You will also notice that we have added a utility to view and
print wellbore diagrams to the tooltip. This utility is also available
through a new Wellbore tab in the Details Pane. In the near future you will
be able to export data from GIS Data Mining to use in your local management
application(s). Just look for a printer icon next to tables and lists throughout the site.
Additional plans for the future include the addition of
orthographic photos map layer, Field - Unit - Lease map layer, Quarter/Quarter map layer and much more. The

The Nebraska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission was founded in 1959. Its mission is to foster, encourage and promote the development, production and
utilization of natural resources of oil and gas in the state. The mission will be accomplished in such a manner as will prevent waste, protect correlative
rights of all owners, and encourage and authorize secondary recovery, pressure maintenance, cycling, or recycling, in order that the greatest ultimate
recovery of oil and gas may be obtained within the state while protecting the environment. To this end the landowners, producers, and the general public
will realize and enjoy the greatest possible good from these vital, irreplaceable natural resources.
