We are slowly adding oil and gas information related to Idaho to FracTracker.org. The map above shows all the oil and gas wells in ID, plus other related data layers. Current oil and gas well data has only recently been made available for the state. The data was found from ID Geological Survey and the ID Department of Lands.
