Well Information System (WIS)

Oil Well Donkey


WIS allows approved oil and gas operators to submit permit applications and reports electronically using the Internet. This includes the BLM forms for Notice of Staking (NOS), Application for Permit to Drill (APD), Well Completion Report, and Sundry Notice. Operators can also attach the required documents in PC files for these permits/reports.

A new version of WIS was released on August 1, 2008, now known as The Well Information System or WIS. Transactions may be submitted to any of the 32 BLM Field Offices which include the 10 BLM offices that process indian wells.
