Scanned Digital Oil & Gas Records
The Office of Oil, Gas, and Minerals (OOGM) has converted paper wire-line logs to digital files. The resulting digital files are called Raster Logs (digital ‘Raster' files of the geophysical ‘Logs'). The files, in various formats primarilly as TIFs, are sorted into the appropriate three digit API county code.
Digital Oil and Gas Permit Well Files
Oil and Gas Permit Well Files are the documents that are generated over the course of the life of a well - from application to plugging. The content of the file depends on the history and activities at the site. Currently the files for permits 1 to 60399 are available as Adobe Acrobat PDFs sorted into the appropriate three digit API county code.
Oil and Gas Drillers' Logs are the formation description and formation top pick in an 8.5 by 11 inch format. The files are available as Adobe Acrobat PDFs sorted into the appropriate three digit API county code.
Even though this is one of the most complete sets of records for Michigan, we know it is not complete. For a variety of reasons some records were not available for conversion. If you have any records that will add to this collection and are willing to share them, the OOGM will scan the files and return the source documents and the associated digital files.
In a collection of this size and complexity there are inadvertent errors and omissions. Please report problems or discrepancies you encounter. Your help is appreciated. Your feedback will help improve the quality of the collection.
To get a complete set of Digital Records
Return shipping (UPS, FedEx, etc) is the responsibility of the party sending the disk drive. If return shipping is not provided, the unit will be sent by U. S. Mail. The U. S. Mail does not provide tracking and can take weeks to arrive. There are no other costs or fees associated with acquiring these files.

Individual Well Files
If you want a single well file and the permit is lower than 60400 we can email you the file in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. Send your request by E-Mail and the OOGM will send the file to you.
For records that have not been converted to digital (permits 59000 and above) please make a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the materials you need. Depending on the files size this may involve copying and billed.
Updates will be available via File Transfer Protocol (FTP). For more information about accessing the DEQ FTP site, or to add your name to the E-Mail update notification list, please contact Mr. Steve Wilson.
