Louisiana Parish Well Reference 2004

Cartographic, Production and Well information Reference 1900 - 2004


The Louisiana Parish Well Reference (LPWR) was a pilot project. Modeled after the Louisiana Desktop Well Reference it is a Geographic Information System (GIS) for the Louisiana oil and gas industry emphasizing the historical field and LUW production at the parish level.

The historical production data, including prior to 1977, was compiled from two sources from the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources Office of Conservation. Monthly LUW production was taken from the Production Audit Cards and annual field production was taken from the Annual Oil and Gas Reports.

Project parishes:

  • St. Bernard (available)
