Illinois Oil and Gas Resources (ILOIL) Interactive Map

The Illinois Oil and Gas Resources mapping project enables on-line access to a large database of over 200,000 Illinois oil and gas well records. This database has been in development for many years by the Illinois State Geological Survey. Traditionally, these well records have only been available during regular business hours at the Geological Records Unit in Champaign, Illinois.

In addition to oil and gas records from the ISGS wells database, users can view other data layers like producing horizons, samples, core analysis data, structure contours, waterflood areas, and oil fields.  Through these layers the application also provides access to other resources including well summary sheets, logs, scout check tickets, core analysis reports, and oil field statistics.

Illinois Oil and Gas Web Mapping Applications (ILOIL)

ILOIL was last updated on November 10, 2015 at approximately 10:00 am.  Updates include, but are not limited to, updating the API Number links to reflect a new Oracle database server, adding more selection tools (like point, line, and freehand lines and polygons), tooltips when you hover over Status, Formation, and Field Codes, and some minor changes to filtering selections.  

Also added with this update was a mobile version.  Now when try to navigate to the ILOIL application on a mobile phone you will automatically be redirected to a mobile version.  The mobile version was created using Esri's Web AppBuilder.  As you can access the internet over a WiFi or cellular network, you can access the data you are used to accessing from your desktop.

The current ILOIL application was built using Esri ArcGIS for Server version 10.3,  Esri’s ArcGIS API for Flex version 3.7, and the Adobe Flex SDK 4.6.0.

If you have any problems with any of the new functionality, desktop or mobile, please contact Melony Barrett by email ( or phone 217-333-7917.
