The RRC has posted that they are shutting down certain parts of their website to the public from 8-11am on weekdays. This affects L337Tech’s Texas Production Query. If you have a RRC login then you can simply log on (using internet explorer) and the tool will function normally. Currently I have not felt the effects of this shut down but I am sure implementation is eminent. The tool should function normally outside of the shut down window.
Texas Production Query Tool is a tool designed for royalty owners, petroleum engineers, and anyone else attempting to investigate wells in Texas. This tool allows you to enter an api number or double click a well from the entire Texas active well index to pull up the production data and basic information about the well. The tool also provides direct links to well logs, completion information, arcgis map location, and well file documents. The tool can also pull pre-release production data for wells that are so new they have no lease number. The program figures out if this is the case and looks for the data in the appropriate place seamlessly. This tool is your one stop shop to find out everything about a well in Texas. Since the tool uses Excel as a front end, you can copy down all the api numbers of the wells on your farm or the wells in your investigation into an adjacent column to quickly have access to them again.
This tool was built and design by Senior Reservoir Engineer with many years in the business (me). This tool was originally built out of necessity to help me investigate certain wells that were very early in their life where data is hard to come by. No one gets data earlier than the state, which makes this tool so powerful since it taps into the data provided by the Texas RRC (rail road commission) web site.
The Texas active well index provided with this tool has all of the active wells in Texas provided in a sortable list. If you know your land is operated by “Chevron” and the county is “Panola” and the lease name starts with “Adams” then simply sort the list like that to find all the wells on your land. The Texas active well list will be updated once a month. Your purchase only guarantees you the list of the month you purchased, but you will be allowed 10 downloads so it is possible to re-download the application in a new month with an updated list. Once you run out of downloads you will need to re-purchase the application.
This program can also be used with tools like my Quick Decline program to estimate ultimate recoveries from wells and generate detailed economics with any interval cashflow and other economic output. Quick Decline is currently unavailable for purchase, but see the example in the demonstration video. Using Texas Production Query Tool and Quick Decline together can help land owners predict royalty payments and Petroleum Engineers predict economics on new projects.
A couple of quick notes about the available Texas well data. Production before 1993 is unavailable. Not all wells have well logs. Only wells completed after 2009 have detailed completion reports available by clicking the completion hyperlink within the program. For these wells you will need to look into the well files. Not all wells have well files (like recently completed well). For these wells use the well completion hyperlink. You maybe prompted about an error being produced for a specific well. This is likely due to production ending before 1993 or the well is too new and has no data. If this occurs the hyperlinks should be your best source of information. Typically production data trails the current date by two or three months depending on the well’s operator. This program does not allocate production back to the well level for lease id’s that have multiple wells. This program requires Office 2007 later (specifically Excel and Access) to be installed on the computer expected to run this application. The computer should also have around 2GB of RAM installed. You must also have an active connection to the internet.
