Learning Module:  
Alberta Oil & Gas Well Intelligence

Objective:  Gain oil & gas market intelligence through interpretation of Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) data.

Background:  The AER regulates oil & gas in Alberta.  To drill / operate a well, a company needs a well license.  Well licenses and drilling history data is provided by the AER.   Mining some of that data can help us understand aspects of the industry.

Sub-topics:  well drilling activity in the last year; new & canceled well licenses; confidential wells; well licensees (operators / E&P companies) activity; production fluids.
