Click on the button below to show all Michigan oil & gas wells that have caused ground water contamination according to the Michigan DNR's 1993 SAP list. Note that some ground water contamination locations have been fully remediated and some are in active remediation. Currently there are 206 confirmed cases where ground water was contaminated as a result of an oil or gas well. We know of more wells and expect this number to rise as our research continues but we only list wells where we can get confirmation from MDEQ documentation.

Through boots on the ground research, we are collecting data and documentation on spill locations and putting the resultant reports on the location homepages. Click any of the markers on the demo map and check out the report on the location's homepage. We detail information about the ground water contamination at each of the locations and support the report with documents from various MDEQ field offices throughout the state.

Michigan Oil & Gas Monthly – October 2015

In the October 2015 edition of MOGM we see application and permitting activity continue to be slow keeping us on pace to be another of the slowest years of permitting activity in Michigan history. Two more original Collingwood HVHF wells were plugged this month dropping a couple more nails in the coffin of the Collingwood era in the Michigan Basin. Click through to read the October 2015 MOGM.

Michigan Oil & Gas Production Report January – June 2015

The first six months of hydrocarbon production in the Michigan Basin are ready for reporting. In this post we examine the top ten producers in the oil, natural gas, and NGL categories. We find in 2015 that wells originally drilled in completed in the 1970’s and 1980’s are outperforming so new wells after having been worked over and recompleted.


Coal Use Forecasted To Rise – How We Can Mitigate Coal Pollution

Coal use is growing across the world. Coal will eventually surpass oil as the #1 primary energy source for world energy consumption. Over 1.3 billion people around the world do not have electricity and they will be planning on building coal fired power plants as a cornerstone to their energy plan. We can either understand this reality and help the world’s poor make the best lemonade with the lemons we have, or we can stand by and pretend protesting coal will make the world a better place.

Kalamazoo Oil Spill

Kalamazoo River Oil Spill

It’s been 5 years since Enbridge Energy’s Line 6B pipeline ruptured and spilled over 800,000 gallons of heavy crude oil into Talmadge Creek. Talmadge Creek is a tributary to the Kalamazoo River which outfalls to Lake Michigan. The Line 6B spill was the biggest and costliest inland spill in US history and it happened in our backyard. In this post we reflect on its impact, what might have happened if Enbridge went bankrupt, and how FCEVs have rendered oil technologically obsolete.

Michigan Oil & Gas Monthly – September 2015

The top story in September in the Michigan Basin continues to be Marathon Oil’s new applications and activity. Things move pretty slowly in oil & gas developments so we will keep on eye on their activity to see if it brings any new life to Michigan’s anemic oil & gas industry. So far this year, Michigan has only put 14 wells onto production. Click on the picture to read the September edition of the Michigan Oil & Gas Monthly.

Secret Science – Marathon Oil’s 2015 Activity In The Michigan Basin

Marathon Oil’s Science well is a part 625 well. A part 625 well has all its information held secret for 10 years. Marathon cleared some State of Michigan owned forest area and started a mineral test well. In the coming month’s, Marathon might be back to this same general location to drill the State Beaver Creek 1-14 HD1. Stay tuned to RMP for developments on Marathon activity in the Michigan Basin.


Michigan Oil & Gas Monthly – August 2015

In the August 2015 MOGM, we take a look at the possibility of operating Antrim gas wells on a vacuum. We also talk about natural gas and synthetic natural gas. Natural gas is a part of our environment and always will be as long as there are living things.
