IGOR database

The Austin Core Research Center (CRC), located adjacent to Bureau headquarters, is the Bureau's main core repository for core and rock material donated to the University. More than 500,000 boxes of core and cuttings from wells drilled throughout Texas, the U.S., and the world are available at this facility for public viewing and research. Austin, Houston, and Midland core facilities have combined holdings of nearly 2 million boxes of geologic material.

Searchable Database
The Integrated Core and Log Database (IGOR) is a searchable database for all CRC core and well cutting holdings. Some Austin and Midland data are not currently included in IGOR; please contact James Donnelly (512-471-0402) if you have any questions regarding this.
Resources and Services
Public facilities include core examination layout rooms and processing rooms for slabbing core. Nominal fees are charged to rent table space and to view core. Other services are available upon request. Comprehensive Austin and Midland CRC inventories are available on CD-ROMs for $10.00 (contact Publications Sales or James Donnelley). Data are listed in Excel spreadsheet format.
