Texas Wells And Pipelines Go Online

Finding the location of an oil or gas well or pipeline in Texas just got easier. reports that the Texas Railroad Commission has put the location of wells and pipelines in its Geographic Information System data base online. The data includes existing and proposed wells as well as oil and natural gas pipelines.

Despite its name, the Texas Railroad Commission regulates the oil and gas industry in Texas, the top oil and gas producer in the United States. While the well locations should interest the oil and gas industry, of more interest to the mapping professions will be the depictions of oil and gas pipelines. The map can be found here.
