Illinois Oil and Gas Resources (ILOIL) Internet Map Service
Announcing the New ILOIL Interface!
We have upgraded the software and hardware to provide a more stable, up-to-date site. If you have any trouble with the new site please contact Melony Barrett.
Notes for Interactive Mapping
- The Web interface is best viewed using a browser compatible with Flash.
- Adobe Flash may be needed to view the interface and can be downloaded from Adobe.
The Illinois Oil and Gas Well Data Web mapping project enables on-line access to a large database of over 170,000 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.
