Old Well Data… We Have It!


We have heard a few times that “Drillinginfo is great, but you don’t have old well data”.  Au contrair, as our Louisiana friends would never say.  We purchased Penn Energy Data in 2004, and that database contained historical wellbore information that is, essentially, the Dw(ayne)s database.  Ehem.  We are legally precluded from mentioning the name of the database, but there you have it.

If you are like 99 users out of a hundred, you go to “Related Filings”, and if you can’t find wellbore information within the “completion” section, you might go away muttering “geez.  Drillinginfo doesn’t have historical wellbore data”.  But wait!  The Penn Energy/Dw(ayne)s data can be found either via a direct search for “SuperScout Wells” in the search wizard…

SuperScout1Or… under the “Related DI Super Scout Information” link in the “Related Filings” page.

Scout 4When you click this, it will take you to a table of information about the well, such as Formation Tops, DST’s and Shows such as seen in the attached images.


scout7So admit it.  You didn’t know it was there, did you?  In any case, by putting it on the Drillinginfo Wireline, we are now exposing it to the 20 out of 10,000 daily visitors that actually visit the DI blog…
