Located in the Bureau of Economic Geology’s Resource Center, the Geophysical Log Facility (GLF) houses geophysical well data available to the general public, industry, and researchers. Approximately 1.5 million logs are archived at the GLF, including those from the Railroad Commission of Texas, industry donations, and Bureau research projects. Other datasets available at the GLF include well records, drillers’ logs, strip logs, mud logs, scout tickets, and core analyses from thousands of Texas wells.
A searchable database of well logs stored at the GLF is available online through the Bureau’s Integrated Core and Log Database (IGOR). Data not yet catalogued is available by visiting the GLF at the Bureau. Logs are available in electronic format (.tif images) or as paper copies upon request. Logs are copied on continuous, prefolded paper and cost $2.75 per log + $.50 per linear foot + shipping and handling. Electronic images are $2.75 each.
