The Geologic Energy Management Division (CalGEM, formerly DOGGR) is continually working toward improved electronic data management and transparency. In support of that, CalGEM has increased the availability of online data applications for industry operators and the public in recent years.
For example, CalGEM implemented greater functionality of the Well Statewide Tracking and Reporting (WellSTAR) system, a customized online database of well recordkeeping that provides operational standardization and regulatory compliance clarification. In turn, that allows CalGEM to better enforce oil and gas production requirements. A fall, 2019 WellSTAR release gives the public access to many records.
WellSTAR is one program that helps serve the need for online data. Requests for information from the public, industry, government, and non-government organizations are increasing. The following links to other CalGEM applications and reports provide information and data in electronic form.
