This package contains the following:
- Well data: detailed information about 80k+ horizontal wells in 10 US states, such as location, well name, operator, vertical depth, measured depth, lateral length. Several dates are included as well, such as the spud, completion, first production, and plugged dates.
- Production data: for each of these wells that started producing, monthly production records are available that describe how much oil & gas is produced, the operator, water production, and # number of days that the well was producing.
- Wellbore location data: for most wells, both the surface, and bottom hole locations are provided (in longitude/latitude pairs).
- Completion data: all completions that have been reported to FracFocus are included. A completion record typically contains the start and end date of the fracturing operation, how much proppant & fluids were used, and the main proppant type & mesh. It also contains the original FracFocus disclosure header fields. Furthermore, metrics are provided which give an indication of how reliable the data appears, based on the number of omitted and inconsistent data fields.
Not all fields may be filled in completely, as some states do not provide certain types of data publicly. E.g. the number of days that wells have actually produced in a certain month is not available in Texas.
