The process is relatively simple and the familiarity and ease of Google Maps makes it appealing.
The basic idea is to select and stack filters.
Instructions to create your own maps and reports
For example, suppose that you want to know what Ohio county received the most permit applications from June 1st 2013 to August 17 2013 and what companies were issued the permits.
- First select the time range. Go to the Filter selection at the top left of the map, select "Permit Issued", use the calendar to set the date range from June 1 to August 17 2013, and then you have a nice map of wells from this time frame only.
- Next, go back to the "Filter" option and add "County" where you will see that "Carrol" county had the most permits issued at 50, followed by Harrison at 29 and Belmont at 24. Now, select the check box next to Carrol county to see those wells only, next select "Operator" to see that Chesapeake accounted for 45 of those permits and R. E. (Rex Energy) accounted for the remaining 5.
- You can even drill deeper to determine the status of just the 50 wells permitted since June. To do this you simply add another Filter, "Status", where you will see 4 of the 50 wells drilling. Now select the check box next to "Drilling" and you will see 4 Chesapeake wells.
