Geophysical Log Facility (GLF)
The Geophysical Log Facility (GLF) is the official well log repository for the Railroad Commission of Texas, which by law receives a copy of geophysical logs from every new, deepened, or plugged well drilled in Texas since September 1985. An estimated 1.5 million logs, including the RRC collection, donated logs from industry, and logs used in BEG research projects, are archived in the GLF. Other datasets available include historical well records and scout tickets from thousands of Texas wells. Well logs are available as electronic (tiff)images and as paper copies.
 
Integrated Core and Log Database (IGOR)

The Integrated Core and Log Database (IGOR) is a searchable database of well logs stored at BEG. Users can search by API number (10-digit number), or by county, operator, lease/well name, field, and depth.  The Bureau offers  access  to IGOR  at http://igor.beg.utexas.edu/crc2/
