Welcome to the New Mexico Water and
Infrastructure Data System.
This web site
has been designed to provide several tools and data sets that will help New Mexico
oil and gas producers find more information about produced and ground water and
water-related issues in New Mexico.The pilot project for this website was designed
for southeast New Mexico; therefore our most detailed data covers this area of the
state. However you will find produced water data for the entire state, and the tools
such as the scale calculation and mixing tools will apply for any data you may wish
The web site consists of four sections: data, maps,
scale information, and corrosion information.
- Data includes two searchable databases; one for groundwater in southeast New Mexico,
and one for produced water analyses throughout the state. We also have some conversion
tools in case you want to convert units of concentration, temperature, volume, etc.
The databases link to tools you can use to calculate the chemistry of a mix of two
waters or to determine the composition of any scale likely to form from a given
water or mix of waters.
- Maps provides an on-line map-based interface to these
databases, as well as GIS layers that were used to produce some of the maps. Also
in this section, you will find results of a study of water quality trends and variations
in southeast New Mexico based on our data.
- Scale provides tools for predicting the likelihood
of scale formation from waters of a particular chemistry or a mix of waters. Scale
is an important source of water-related oilfield problems. The scale and mixing
tools will either take data from our database, or you can enter your own data.
Corrosion is a resource book covering corrosion-related problems in southeast New
Mexico: what is seen, problem areas, and possible mitigation techniques.
