Tag man_made=petroleum_well absolutely can not provide a full range of deep wells. This proposal is written for an opportunity fuller, exact, tagging wells. It contains all the main varieties of wells on their purpose, as well as possible their designations and names. In addition, each hole has its own code (number), as well as some wells have their own names.

The principle of tagging wells

1) man_made=well - a designation of wells in general, except for on water, for this use man_made=water_well

2) well=* with possible values:

  • production - operational wells, with the help of which are mined minerals(including salt) they are also injection wells
  • special - special wells, for example for preparation of underground gas storehouses
  • exploration - search (prospecting) drilled for search of deposits of minerals (gas, fluid, solid)
  • investigation - research (science) well, is intended for scientific-research work

3) Number please designate as ref=*. The name respectively as name=*. Name and number of wells should be taken only from open sources, because they often refer to classified information. It is necessary to designate numbers and names of those wells which have transformed into monuments, or they are scientific property.


A) man_made=well
well = production

B) man_made=well
