The Powell Barnett Shale Newsletter, a subscription-only electronic publication aimed at industry insiders, has created the Barnett Shale PowerMap©, which allows users to view production data for individual wells that can be searched for by location. The map covers the Barnett Shale and other fields in the Fort Worth Basin. To give it a try, visit the newsletter at http://www.barnettshalenews.com. There is a link to the map, along with instructions on how to use it.
The map displays Texas Railroad Commission data, but people who have attempted to use the Railroad Commission's own production information system (http://gis2.rrc.state.tx.us/public/) should find the newsletter's map vastly easier to use. The map will be free through June 15, after which it will require a subscription.
