Updates to Petroleum and Wells Map:

January 11, 2008: Updated PNG Wells with data from LRDW, including Well Surface Hole, Well Bottom Hole, and Well Directional Survey layers.  Layers are connected to reports by selecting wells and the report button, or left double-click the well.

September 21, 2007: Added Bouguer, Free Air, and Isostatic Gravity.

January 5, 2006: Updated the Tenure Number search, Owner search and Petroleum Tenure layer report to query the Land and Resource Data Warehouse. The map will now automatically zoom to search results.

October 4, 2005: Added Nechako Basin gravity data.

July 27, 2004:  Added PNG Report Locations and Footprints.   Located in the Petroleum Layers group, turn on the PNG Report Locations layer and double-clicked the point to reveal the footprint area of the report.  If that report has been scanned, represented by the red squares, double-click the footprint to link to the scanned PNG Reports (Only available in Internet Explorer).  Use the select tool to view tabular reports with links associated with the PNG Report Locations layer.  Also, use the Zoom-GoTo tool to locate reports based on report name.

This is a test phase, if you would like to view more reports in the future please email Fil Ferri.

March 8, 2004:
Added well symbols for the PNG Wells NE, SW and SE layer and reports to SW Wells with links to detailed SW Well Reports.

March 3, 2004: Double-click the Footprint of the Bowser Basin to zoom to the detailed geology of the Northern Bowser Basin (Only works in Internet Explorer). Select the rock units for a detailed legend report for Bowser Basin Geology.

January 28, 2004: Added Vitrinite and Bitumen Reflectance Data and Preliminary Organic Maturity Model for the Northern two thirds of the Bowser and Sustut Basins, North-Central British Columbia (Petroleum Open File 2002-1).
