Please see the attached Newsrelease, failure to report on time can have significant consequences. The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) is taking failure to report on time seriously.

Be sure to plan your visit to the OGSR Library while you're in London. The library is the access point to all Ontario petroleum industry data, including: well files, production records, geophysical logs, core, well cuttings, references, and many other reports. Many of our resources are available on-line. As a special to ESAAPG attendants you can arrange for a free trial so you can keep exploring after the meeting. Also, be sure to sign up for short course #3 -- Paleozoic Organic-Rich Mudstones of Ontario -- taking place at OGSR Library, there will be a lot of great core to see!
There may still be plenty of opportunity for hydrocarbon exploration in Ontario. The Ontario Potential Hydrocarbon Resources Ordovician Hydrothermal Dolomite Play assessment is available to help you discover more oil and gas resources.
Results of the assessment suggest that total Middle Ordovician recoverable gas and oil resources is in the order of 7,960 106m3 (281 bcf) and 6,313,671m3 (39.7 MMbbls) respectively. Eighty-five per cent of this gas volume 6,799 106m3 (240 bcf) and 43 per cent of this oil volume 2,733,296m3 (17.2 MMbbs) remains to be discovered.
Report only $750. Electronic copies are available by contacting us.

Ontario digital petroleum production data from 1992 to 2007 is now available to all members for free during our four month beta test period, ending May 1, 2010.
Data is accessed on a well by well basis through the production tab on wells cards found using the well search. Data tables can also be prepared by the OGSR Library on a per operator, per pool, or per area basis.
Additional tools to allow the querying of many wells at once should be available online in the new year.
Anyone looking for high quality aerial photography in South Western Ontario should visit the SWOOP 2010 website.
Viewing Aerial Photos at the OGSR Library:
Aerial photos taken during the SWOOP 2006 project are available for viewing at the OGSR Library via MNR's PetroGIS application. PetroGIS can be accessed in house at the OGSR Library by anyone who is a member of the library.
Check out the current preview of digital production data by downloading the OGSR Library PxTools. This preview uses 3D spheres to show oil & gas production by well for each month of 2007. Use the time slider in Google® Earth to move between months and animate the 2007 production.
