Interactive map of oil and gas resources in Nevada

Screenshot of Oil and Gas Potential map of Nevada

The Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology provides an interactive map with a large amount of information about oil and gas resources in the state. The interactive map includes:

  • Oil and gas wells
  • Oil and gas seeps
  • Oil and gas shows in water wells or springs
  • Oil and gas potential
  • Source rock outcrops
  • Conodont color alteration index (CAI, which provides information on thermal maturity)
  • Specific areas with very low to no potential for oil and gas production (volcanic calderas; metamorphic and intrusive igneous rocks)

The data are available for download for further use and analysis, and links to additional information are provided.
