The GWPC also is now planning the development of a mobile application for Smart Phones and tablet based devices that will use the internal GPS location to display a map of nearby oil, gas, and UIC wells. Dubbed the Well Finder, the application will feature a map component that will track the mobile device and update the display of well points as the location changes. The Well Finder will be an important tool for inspectors, emergency responders, and other users who must locate wells in their area or in areas they are traversing.

Selecting a well will display the well's identification information, such as an API or permit number, type (oil, gas, UIC, etc.), status (active, plugged, etc.), operator contact information, recent production with a link to detailed production history, and regulatory agency and emergency contact information. The OG Explorer will further leverage the GWPC's and DOE's investment in RBDMS through a pilot test with oil and gas data from the Oklahoma Corporation Commission.
