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, Unit, ROW, and RUE. 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 sources of information in OWL 7 are from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and Bureau of Safety & Environmental Enforcement (BSEE), formerly the MMS section of the U.S. Department of Interior. Lexco greatly enhances the data using proprietary processing techniques established from over 25 years of experience in working with offshore data.
