    Title of Research Effort: Continuation of ``Natural Resources 
Information System (NRIS)'' Development for the State of Oklahoma.
    Awardee: Oklahoma Geological Survey (University of Oklahoma).
    Term of Assistance (Grant) Award: 12 months.
    Cost of Assistance Effort: The total estimated project value is 
$375,000 of which $75,000 will be borne by the awardee, with the 
remaining $300,000 funded by DOE.
    Objective: The objective is to continue to develop, edit, maintain, 
utilize and make available to the public the oil and gas Well History 
File portion of the Natural Resources Information System (NRIS) for the 
State of Oklahoma. The proposed work is considered to be relevant to 
the DOE mission in that the program will provide a mechanism for 
communication and interactive research efforts between DOE and the 
Oklahoma Geological Survey in the development and maintenance of an 
information system in response to the need for a computerized, 
centrally located library containing accurate, detailed information on 
the state's natural resources. The one-year cooperative research 
program extends a unique opportunity to complete the foundation of the 
NRIS oil and gas Well History File by processing the remaining 
historical records of Osage County, estimated to total 53,000, bringing 
the Well History File to approximately 420,000 records when completed.
