Developing a Work flow for Creating a Data Portal for the Eaglebine Oil and Gas Play
MetadataShow full item record
The oil production in Texas is growing rapidly with the discoveries of new methods such as Hydraulic Fracking and discoveries of new Oil Plays like The Eagleford Shale Play. The growth is so fast and so large that great amount of data is being produced every day. The ability to compile and research this data is very limited. This is the problem that we are attempting solve by creating and managing a workflow on how to gather and input geological, geophysical and geographical data into a database that will support research from several departments at Texas A&M University. This workflow comprise different stages. First, collecting data from various sources. Second, the data sorting and formatting. Third, the database creation. After the data is transformed into a 2D and 3D interactive webpage that allow the data to be accessed by the users. The advantage of this database is to combine resources from different departments on campus to use this data for research. This instrument will be useful in obtaining data for projects in an oil and gas play area. However the lack of help from industry and problems with free data available to the public can present a challenge. If user do not upload processed data files then the growth of files would be hampered.
