The Hydrocarbon Reservoir Characterization Group (RCG) is overseen by the New York State Museum, providing free and custom oil and gas well-related data.

Mission

RCG is, in part, responsible for providing access to all publicly available New York State oil and gas well-related data. This is done primarily through the Empire State Oil and Gas Information System (ESOGIS) esogis.nysm.nysed.gov.

In addition to publicly available New York State oil and gas well-related data, RCG regularly gathers and processes additional custom data available on an a la carte and subscription plan basis.
