Data Dictionary for Water Report



Water use reporting requirements under Senate Bill 1281 specified the Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources (Division) implement online reporting by oil and gas operators of all water produced and used in oil and gas field activities.  In order for the Division to implement such a requirement, it needed to define and describe the information required in the water report.  A data dictionary is commonly used for this purpose, and therefore the Division produced the document below.  This document describes every data field and defines associated attributes which are applied across multiple forms used for online reporting.  The forms are embedded into a spreadsheet layout.
