While substantial efforts are made to ensure the accuracy of data and documentation, complete accuracy of data sets cannot be guaranteed. All data are made available “as is”. The AirWaterGas SRN shall not be liable for damages resulting from any use or misinterpretation of data sets. Data users should be aware that we periodically update data sets.

Data Use and Availability
Unless otherwise noted, all data is public and may be freely copied, distributed, edited, remixed, and built upon under the condition that you give acknowledgement. When publishing or distributing this data, please acknowledge the AirWaterGas Sustainability Network, NSF Cooperative Agreement #CBET-1240584. The dataset creators would appreciate hearing of any plans to use the dataset. Consider consultation or collaboration with dataset creators.

Our goal is to release all project-generated data associated with core research areas within 2 years of collection. Dataset creators may chose to publish or release data sooner. These data and accompanying metadata will be available for download from the AWG Data Portal website.

AWG Data Portal
The AWG-created Data Portal contains datasets AWG has collected from publicly accessible sources, such as state oil & gas regulatory agencies websites, and placed into more usable formats. Data such as oil and gas well metadata, production amounts, and water chemistry are available in bulk download format as either character delimited text files or other open formats. Data collection efforts began in 2014 with new datasets frequently added. Efforts are underway to periodically refresh datasets, otherwise they are current through the stated collection date.

COGCC Query Tool
AirWaterGas has collected and organized data available through the Colorado Oil & Gas Conservation Commission’s (COGCC) website. This data has been made available to the public in order to facilitate access to information about oil and gas development in the state of Colorado. The query tool offers robust data filtering with no record limits, keyword searches on all text fields, and data exports in multiple formats.

FracFocus Query Tool
AirWaterGas has downloaded and restored the FracFocus Chemical Disclosure Registry database available at This data has been made available to the public in order to facilitate access to information contained in the Chemical Disclosure Registry database.
