Colorado Well Location Data Made Available for Download

Because of the recent events in Colorado due to an uncapped flowline feeding gas from a well 178 feet away into the basement of a house and the subsequent explosion resulting in the deaths of two and the injury of one, there’s renewed interest in the locations of oil wells  in the State of Colorado, especially those that might be near residential buildings (or any buildings for that matter).

To this end, I’ve extracted a shapefile from the COGCC’s GIS downloads site, tweaked it a bit to add an explanation column for the status of the well, and then exported the resulting datasets to both a CSV and SQLITE file.  These CSV and SQLITE files were then compressed into a 7-ZIP archive suitable for download and inflation.

The 7-ZIP archive can be found at the following URL:
