The Offshore Well and Lease (OWL) Database is a relational database specifically designed to search, report, and map almost any piece of digital OCS data in less than a minute. Version 7 is organized around subject themes which allow users to focus on an individual item or area of interest such as Area/Block, Lease, Pipeline, Platform ID, Well, Prospect, Field, and Unit. Each theme’s data is linked with other themes through the use of key identifiers such as OCS Area and Block, Lease number, Well API number, Platform ID number, and other links. These key identifiers are used within a uniquely designed navigation system, the OWL 7 Navigator, to search or access data within the OWL Database.
The primary source of information in OWL 7 is from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation, and Enforcement (BOEMRE), formerly the MMS, section of the U.S. Department of Interior. Lexco greatly enhances the data using proprietary processing techniques established over 20 years of experience in working with offshore data.
