New York, NY (PRWEB) April 25, 2012
ShaleNavigator™, a feature-rich web-based mapping system, allows landowners, landowner groups, drillers, pipeline, and consulting companies visualize shale development activity at regional and local levels. Strong well results have been released, acquisition agreements have been announced, and investment continues to rise, but challenge remains in interpreting the continuous activity at the local level. “The recent well results, new permits, buyouts, partnerships, and new midstream investments all contribute to defining where future development paths are going to be, as well as where value can be found today” says Edward Camp, owner and developer of ShaleNavigator™. “There is a need for a system that can capture and context all this news and information that has such incredible value once layered together, and we believe ShaleNavigator™ has done just that.”
How ShaleNavigator™ translates news into usable, Local information.
Finding out where these events are taking place can be challenging. A recent production report may name a well but the exact location of the well is often left out of news releases; a merger or acquisition release names companies and acreage holdings in the deal, but only city or county names identify where that acreage is; an environmental investigation might name a stream, but the stream traverses 10 miles.
ShaleNavigator™ finds relevant and meaningful news for Subscribers, and assigns location to where the news is happening. This is ShaleNavigator’s™ Newsboard, a unique tool for users to see where news is happening, relative to their property or area of interest. In addition to recent well results and mergers, the Newsboard has shown where well permits, water withdrawal permits, pipeline permits, and even lawsuits are occurring. As a result of the continuous news and map layer updates, ShaleNavigator™ is quite nearly a “Live” map – every day something is added or updated to keep up with development activities.
In addition to the Newsboard, ShaleNavigator™ users can view the latest available well permit and production points for Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia, generalized company lease positions, major pipeline right of ways, and even recent lease offers as layers in the map. Acquired through years of research, difficult to find layers were created by process of assigning real-world coordinates to information, and then conversion to become layers in the map. Other more readily available layers from government sources, and partnerships with private news and data providers supplies additional information that makes ShaleNavigator™ so unique. Subscribers can draw on, create, and save their own maps, and even share them with other subscribers. "In design, we wanted a system that was easy to use, yet powerful in the aspects of total information and functionality, serve a variety of users, and would allow them to view information in the maps as well as create, save, and share maps they create”.
Available Property Layer Announced
ShaleNavigator Subscribers will have access to the all-new Available Property Layer beginning May 1st. Subscribers can add their properties shown in the map and can be contacted through the Available Property Table by interested parties. “The new layer will allow Subscribers to show their properties in the context of all the other ShaleNavigator data. This will be a one-stop showcase for those seeking to lease or sell the surface or mineral rights they hold to a qualified audience who knows what they are looking for, so this is yet another opportunity that our Subscribers can take advantage of right now,” Camp explained.
