Notice to Oil and Gas Operators - Digital Well Log System Available Online


The Railroad Commission of Texas (Commission) is encouraging oil and gas operators to begin using the new Digital Well Log system available on the Commission’s website via the RRC Online System at, electronic well logs can also be submitted online via the Digital Well Log system when filing for Statewide Rule (SWR) 13, SWR 101, or Underground Injection Control permitting.

The Commission developed this online application to provide operators the ability to file electronic well log data digitally in both Log ASCII Standard (.LAS) and Tagged Image File Format (.TIFF). The elimination of paper logs will reduce costs to operators and Commission staff time spent converting paper logs into an acceptable digital format.
