Bureau of Economic Geology

Information Resources

Resource Center

Resource Center
The Resource Center includes publications, maps, geophysical well logs, open file reports, data, and other documents that are available for public viewing. Texas geology and Bureau of Economic Geology research is the focus of the collection.

Linda Ruiz McCall is the Bureau Information Geologist and Resource Center Manager.  Please contact Linda at (512) 471-0320 or Linda.McCall@beg.utexas.edu with questions concerning Texas geology and Bureau resources.

The Resource Center is open weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Please see this link for directions and parking information.


Annual Reports and Information

Annual Reports and Information
Annual Reports, information sheets, booklets and brochures.


Integrated Core and Log Database (IGOR)

Integrated Core and Log Database (CONTINUUM)
A searchable database of all geologic and geophysical materials stored at the Bureau. Search by state/province, API number, county/parish, operator, lease/well name, or field.


TexNet

TexNet Seismic Monitoring Program
The TexNet Seismic Monitoring Program was established to locate and determine the origins of earthquakes in Texas, and, where possibly caused by human activity, with helping to prevent earthquakes from occurring in the future. As part of the program, the TexNet research team has developed the TexNet Earthquake Catalog, a dynamic mapping web page that provides information on the location of monitoring stations and recorded earthquakes across the state.


Geohazards

Texas Geologic Hazards
We think of Earth as mostly benign and unchanging, but geologists recognize that our planet is active on time scales ranging from seconds to millions of years. Some of these active processes constitute threats to humans and their homes, businesses, transportation modes, and recreational activities. Such threats are called "geologic hazards," or "geohazards."


Madagascar Open-Source Project

Madagascar Open-Source Project
An open-source computational platform for geophysical data processing and numerical experiments for exploration and production.


Surface Casing Estimator Site

Surface Casing Estimator Site
This web site provides operators with an estimate of casing depths to assist in obtaining the TCEQ Surface Casing Letter.


EASiTool 2.0

EASiTool Project
EasiTool was developed by the Gulf Coast Carbon Center (GCCC) to reliably estimate CO2 storage capacity for saline formations. This analytical simulation tool is fast and can be used as a first step for screening of geological formations to determine which formation can best accommodate your CO2 storage needs.
