A new database of oil and gas land information in the Permian Basin could help companies sort through the numerous land management agencies of New Mexico public land.
The database included records from the federal Bureau of Land Management, New Mexico State Land Office and the State’s Oil Conservation Division.
“This highly valuable data from the New Mexico Oil Conservation Division is extremely difficult to access, and even harder to extract,” read a statement from Oseberg.

Houston-based Mountain Lion Oil partnered with Oseberg on the study, and President Griffin Haby said the project will help companies seeking to operate in New Mexico get a better understanding for what land is available in developing operations.
Oseberg Product Manager Cris Beyers said the dataset could help operators find mineral owners and determine where best to operate in the Permian, by putting all of the area’s government land data in one location.
