Project Description

Work is in progress to create, compile, and disseminate information having the potential to aid economic development in South Dakota related to the exploration and development of oil and gas resources.

Oil and Gas Map-Based Data Source

The Oil and Gas Map-Based Data Source is under development, but in order to provide as much access as possible to state-held information that may be pertinent to the exploration and development of South Dakota’s oil and gas resources, an online data source is now available. <more>

Results and Published Products

Several significant products resulting from the oil and gas initiative have been completed and published by the Geological Survey Program.  These, and all other publications of the Geological Survey Program are available for free download from the Geological Survey Program web site.  <more>

In-Progress Activities

Preparation and organization of several additional data sets and maps are currently underway. Once these products are complete, they will be available through online access. <more>

Planned Activities and Products

Work will soon begin on additional data sets and other products. Progress on these activities will be posted on this website. <more>
