COVID-19 Update - OPIC

The Oklahoma Geological Survey – Oklahoma Petroleum Information Center  (OPIC) will be closed to the general public effective March 13th through April 5th due to health and safety concerns over the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This is a preemptive measure to protect OPIC visitors and staff in compliance with the University of Oklahoma’s preventative measures amid this emerging public health situation. We apologize for any disruptions this may cause. 

For more information please call (405) 325-1299 or visit

OPIC, the Oklahoma Petroleum Information Center, houses more than 100 miles of core from almost 10,000 Oklahoma wells, samples from over 50,000 wells, well logs, production reports, and other material vital to petroleum exploration and production. The collection resides in 192,000 sq ft of space in Norman, Oklahoma, and is available to users through on-site visits by appointment.

The collection contains information, maps and materials useful to industry, academia, scout and school groups, landscapers and civic planners, hunters and fishers, hikers, and those needing topographic maps.

Included in the OPIC complex are office spaces for use by patrons, a conference center, and fee-based core services such as core gamma scan, lighted lay-out tables for viewing, core slabbing and cutting, and core photography.

The OGS Publication Sales Office is housed in OPIC, and provides over-the-counter and mail-order purchases of Survey publications and maps, and also sells USGS topographic and other maps, and AAPG highway maps.

Through OPIC, the OGS provides access to petroleum materials and data collected in Oklahoma and other states since the earliest days of the industry in the 20th century. OPIC preserves and catalogs these collections, adds to them on a continuing basis, and makes the holdings accessible to the public at nominal charges.

NEW – Oklahoma Geoscience/Natural Resources Web Application

The Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS) has initiated an effort to develop a comprehensive database of Oklahoma’s geoscience and natural resource data that will be free and accessible to the public via a spatially driven, map-based web application. While presently in its beta release, contents of the database will eventually include digitally preserved images of OGS core and data holdings, publications, and research that will be synthesized with a master record of georeferenced Oklahoma oil and gas wells and associated production values. As stakeholders of Oklahoma’s natural resources, citizens and energy industry professionals alike will finally have a single online source to access a wealth of information relating to the state’s natural resources--including: oil and gas production, core and sample data, geological publications, aerial photography, and more. While this initial effort is focused on oil and gas, future iterations of the application will provide access to non-energy related data, such as hydrogeology, geohazards and the environment.

In addition to in-house collection data, OGS hopes to benefit from partnerships with the Oklahoma Corporation Commission, the Oklahoma Tax Commission and other state agencies to serve as the comprehensive online source for the state’s natural resource data.

This collaborative effort will have a positive impact on the state by facilitating the dissemination of information to industry participants, the scientific community, and citizens, to promote the economic development of state resources through best practices and environmental stewardship.
