Methodology

All publicly announced wells data are included in this analysis, which is drawn from GlobalData’s USL48 database that provides insights into oil and gas permits and wells as disclosed by state ministry sites.

GlobalData collects the latest production data and analyses the trends when it is made available for public disclosure by state ministries. Differences, if any, between the period of activity and the article date may be attributed to delays in the issuance of data.
