The U.S. Energy Information Administration expanded its U.S. energy mapping system tool Feb. 10 to include the location of producing crude oil and natural gas wells developed across the United States.

The mapping system, which can be found at http://www.eia.gov/state/maps.cfm, allows users to see most crude oil and natural gas wells developed in the United States.

By enabling the "Oil and Gas Wells" feature in the energy mapping tool, users can see producing wells located over a broad geographical area, such as a producing oil or natural gas field. Users can also zoom in to visually inspect wells in their state, county, congressional district, or even neighborhood. When the tool is used with a satellite view, users can see satellite pictures of individual wells.

The tool also provides the locations of pipelines, electric transmission lines, power plants and other energy-related infrastructure.
