Oil and Gas Section Projects Completed

The 3.5-year log scanning project funded by the Illinois Petroleum Resources Board has been completed. Over 144,400 logs in Illinois have been scanned and are available for online viewing and download. The Survey very much appreciates the support of the IPRB in archiving a very valuable resource and in making it available through the ISGS Web site
