Notes: Well counts include any well that produced natural gas at any time during the calendar year. For most states, "Oil Wells" refers only to oil wells that produce natural gas (a subset of all oil wells). However, oil well counts for Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky (derived from World Oil) include all oil wells.  See Definitions, Sources, and Notes link above for more information on this table.
