Texas Railroad Commission launches two more interactive statewide data maps

AUSTIN - The Railroad Commission of Texas launched two more interactive data maps showing oil and gas drilling permit approvals and the number of wells spudded, which is when operators begin drilling a well. Information is displayed by counts, operators, county locations and on a statewide level. The data is available 24-hours a day, seven days a week beginning with Calendar Year 2018. “With this latest interactive data on the Commission’s drilling permit approvals and wells spudded, our agency is providing more detailed insight into Texas’ energy industry,” said Wei Wang, RRC’s Executive Director. “This helps enhance our regulatory transparency and continues educating the public about one of the state’s top economic drivers.” The Commission’s first series of interactive data on oil and gas production and plugged abandoned wells is very popular with nearly 8,000 unique page views for oil and gas production data and nearly 1,400 unique page views for the abandoned well plugging data since the information’s release in October 2019.
