Oil and gas production is primarily located in two regions of the state, the northwest
and southeast corners. The northwest corner is the primary gas producing region,
with San Juan County generating most of the production. The southeast corner of
New Mexico primarily produces oil, with Lea and Eddy counties accounting for the
majority of production.
The New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources Oil and Gas Program operates
a web site, located at (http://geoinfo.nmt.edu/resources/petroleum/)
which provides a brief introduction to the geology of these regions.
We have production data for some counties back to 1971. To look at data by county,
use this search. The files are zipped, and are by county and year. We received a
few reports that our files would not work on earlier versions of WinZip. If you
find yourself not being able to open these files, please upgrade to the latest WinZip
from http://www.winzip.com/. To get the production
