This was the first release of Manitoba oil and gas data on WellWiki. The data was obtained from the Growth Enterprise and Trade branch of the province of Manitoba. It was provided in an Oracle dump file which we converted into a MySQL database using the "OraDump to MySQL" conversion software. From this database we made use of the following tables:
We used the TIGER/Line coordinate system to map each well, for which lat/lon data were available, to their respective division and subdivision.
Overall, this release resulted in the generation of 10,242 Manitoba Well Pages, 978 Manitoba Operator Pages, and 92 Manitoba Division and Subdivision Pages. The team for this project consisted of Joel Gehman, Cole Miller, Alireza Azimi, and Ankesh Kumar. Funding for the project was provided in part by financial support from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and the University of Alberta, as well as in-kind support University of Alberta School of Business.
