Get an Initial View of Opportunities While Managing Costs

When entering new prospective areas to evaluate opportunities, you need to be smart about where you spend your time and your money. Larger data providers have excellent well information, but you know the rub: the cost of these services can be prohibitive during the initial stages of development. Subscription arrangements can easily run $10,000 or more per year, for just a few counties.

Be Smart About How You Use Your Exploration Resources

Rather than putting all of your eggs in one basket, why not adopt a modified approach? Our Texas Well Data, including well headers with API numbers, are already tied to our land grid (Texas County Maps), which is critical when you need to visualize the wells in their spatial context, and is available at pennies on the dollar compared to the larger data providers. Texas County Maps along with the Texas Well Data layer, costs only $249.00 for an entire county - regardless of the number of wells. Subscription arrangements are available that will allow you to keep up to date on activity within the county on a monthly basis. Then, you'll be better equipped to determine which specific wells require more information, and therefore, warrant your time and resources.

Ultra-Fast Delivery via Your Own Online Account

As soon as the information is available, you will be notified via email to download from your protected account on our server.

Easily Integrates with Standard Mapping Applications and Spreadsheets

MidTex Texas Well Data is provided in ASCII and standard spreadsheet formats and easily integrates with a variety of mapping applications, allowing you to quickly use the data - even if all you have is Microsoft Excel.

X/Y or Latitude/Longitude

Position of the well. Supported units are Geodetic (Lat/Lon) or X/Y (State Plane, UTM). Coordinates may be in NAD27 or NAD83 earth models.

Symbol Type

Symbol type. Common types are oil, gas, dry, loc, oilgas. Coming soon: Online list of all well symbol types.


Contains the 8-digit API number assigned to the well bore. The first 3 digits indicate the county in which the bore is located. The last 5 digits represent a unique number that in combination with the first 3 digits makes it unique to the bore. If the API number for a given well is not available, this will contain a calculated unique number.

Quad Number

Contains a 7-digit number representing the USGS 7.5 minute quad number for Texas. This is the map area in which the well bore API number is physically located.


Contains up to 55 characters indicating the name of the original grantee or the name of the company, individual or eleemosynary institution that is common among a formed group of surveys as shown on the General Land Office (GLO) county patent survey map or the GLO state abstract of land titles.


Contains up to 10 characters indicating the number or letter used in description of a group of surveys identified as a block on the General Land Office (GLO) county patent survey map or the GLO state abstract of land titles.


Contains up to 8 characters indicating the number that further describes an abstracted surveyed parcel, or a surveyed parcel further divided into numbered abstracted areas.


Contains up to 6 characters indicating the number assigned to summary statement of facts on which a person's land title rests. The Texas General Land Office assigned the number to the surveyed parcel at the time of patenting (example: a-1234). The term abstract" refers to an original land survey describing an area transferred from the public domain by either the Republic of Texas or the State of Texas. These surveys are recorded in the "state abstract of land titles," which is maintained by the Texas General Land Office. Each survey so recorded is assigned an abstract number which is unique within the county in which the survey falls. Because Texas has never performed a uniform statewide land survey, these original surveys called "patent surveys" constitute the state's official land survey system.


Contains organization/operator name as filed on RRC organization report form (Form P-5).

Total Depth (TD)

Contains a 5-digit number representing the maximum depth of the well bore.

Well Number

Contains the well number.

Lease Name

Contains up to 32 characters representing the name assigned to a lease.

Permit Number
