WellWiki provides data, news and history on 2 million oil and gas wells and counting...

Welcome to WellWiki.org.

Currently, WellWiki.org contains data on over 2 million oil and gas wells in Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario in Canada, and Colorado, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and West Virginia in the United States. Coming next is Kentucky. Eventually, we plan to provide data on all oil and gas wells ever drilled in North America – an estimated 4 million wells since the Drake well in 1859.



Each well is identified by its well number and given a “well page.” A well page provides information on location, permits, associated wellpad, spudding and drilling information, violation and inspection data, production data, and waste information.

Communities and Companies

A well page links to the details of the municipal community hosting a well, the operating company that owns a well, or the waste operator associated with the waste from that well. You will be able to find major operators of a region.


Search, one of the site's most powerful features, lets you search for anything you know about a well and produce relevant results. Find information about a well by searching it's region, company name, well number, and other details.

To unleash the site’s full potential, we need interested stakeholders like you to complement these numbers with narrative-driven content, just like with Wikipedia. For instance, in the case of the Chevron Lanco explosion, one of our editors put together a summary of the incident. In another case, an editor created a page about forced pooling, a different type of issue. If you are interested in becoming a WellWiki.org editor, please sign up!
