PA DEP Introduces New Mapping Tool
December 20, 2013
The PA Environmental Digest reported that the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection introduced a new online Oil and Gas Mapping Tool. The new mapping tool displays the location of wells across Pennsylvania. It allows users to search for wells by type (conventional, unconventional and coal bed methane) and status (active, plugged or abandoned). Users will be able to view the wells through a satellite photo view, topographic map view and animated map view. Once a well is selected, the mapping tool will display well information such as the operator name, well permit number, location information and name of the well.
