Geophysical exploration is an oil and gas activity under the Oil and Gas Activities Act (OGAA) and is specifically defined in the Petroleum and Natural Gas (PNG) Act as investigation of the subsurface by seismic, gravimetric, magnetic, electric and geochemical operations and by any other method approved by the BC Oil and Gas Commission, but does not include the use of geophysical well logs, vertical seismic profile surveys or other surveys obtained from a well. This dataset contains line features for proposed applications collected through the Oil and Gas Commission's Application Management System (AMS).

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
OG_GEOPHYSICAL_APPL_ID GEOPH_A_ID NUMBER 10 OG_GEOPHYSICAL_APPL_ID is a system generated unique identifier number.
GEO_NUMBER GEO_NUM VARCHAR2 16 GEO_NUMBER is the number provided by the Oil and Gas Commission and assigned to the geophysical program. The number is included on the application permit and all operations and final plan documentation, e.g., 2001-105.
PROGRAM_NAME PROG_NAME VARCHAR2 60 PROGRAM_NAME is the program name provided by the operator to the Oil and Gas Commission. The name is included on the application permit and all operations and final plan documentation, e.g., Cheves Creek 3D.
PROGRAM_TYPE PROG_TYPE VARCHAR2 8 PROGRAM_TYPE is the type of geophysical program, i.e., 2D, 3D.
LINE_TYPE LINE_TYPE VARCHAR2 20 LINE_TYPE indicates whether geophysical lines are source, receiver or a combination of both, e.g., SOURCE.
CUT_TYPE CUT_TYPE VARCHAR2 8 CUT_TYPE is a code indicating whether a line already exists or is newly cut and the clearing method used, e.g., NCC (New Cat Cut).
CUT_TYPE_DESC CUT_DESC VARCHAR2 80 CUT_TYPE_DESC is a description indicating whether a line already exists or is newly cut and the clearing method used, e.g., New Cat Cut (NCC).
LINE_WIDTH LINE_WIDTH NUMBER 38 LINE_WIDTH is the width of the geophysical seismic line measured in meters.
APPLICATION_NUMBER APPL_NUM NUMBER 10 APPLICATION_NUMBER is a unique application number that is generated automatically for each application submitted in the Commission's Application Management System, e.g., 100100067.
APPLICATION_TYPE APPL_TYPE VARCHAR2 80 APPLICATION_TYPE is the type of application submitted by the applicant to the Commission's Automated Management System, e.g., New OGAA.
APPLICATION_STATUS APPL_STAT VARCHAR2 80 APPLICATION_STATUS is the status of the application prior to Approval, e.g., In Review.
APPLICATION_SUBMITTED_DATE APPL_DATE DATE 7 APPLICATION_SUBMITTED_DATE is the date the application is submitted to the Commission by the applicant.
REVISION_NUMBER REV_NUM NUMBER 5 REVISION_NUMBER is the number of times the application has been altered prior to approval.
APPLICATION_DETERMINATION_NUM AD_NUM VARCHAR2 18 APPLICATION_DETERMINATION_NUM is a number assigned to an approved or permitted activity or to a set of activities included in a multi-activity application, e.g., 100082189.
PROPONENT PROPONENT VARCHAR2 120 PROPONENT is the organization name of the oil and gas operator, e.g., ARC Resources Ltd.
AUTHORITY_TYPE AUTH_TYPE VARCHAR2 8 AUTHORITY_TYPE is the type of authorization issued by the Commission. Authorizations are issued either under the Oil and Gas Activities Act (OGAA) or the National Energy Board (NEB), e.g., OGAA.
LAND_TYPE LAND_TYPE VARCHAR2 8 LAND_TYPE is a value indicating whether the oil and gas application is on Private or Crown land, i.e., PRIV, CRWN.
DATA_SOURCE DATA_SRC VARCHAR2 10 DATA_SOURCE is the data capture method used to collect the spatial application data submitted to the Commission, i.e., GPSD (GPS-Differential), GPSND (GPS-Non Differential), ORTHO (Ortho Photography), CGWC (Coordinate Geometry With Control), SNK (Source Not Known).
FEATURE_LENGTH_M LENGTH_M NUMBER 19 FEATURE_LENGTH_M is the system calculated length or perimeter of a geometry in meters.
SHAPE SHAPE SDO_GEOMETRY 1 SHAPE is the column used to reference the spatial coordinates defining the feature.
OBJECTID OBJECTID NUMBER 38 OBJECTID is a required attribute of feature classes and object classes in a geodatabase.
SE_ANNO_CAD_DATA A_CAD_DATA BLOB 4000 SE_ANNO_CAD_DATA is a binary column used by spatial tools to store annotation, curve features and CAD data when using the SDO_GEOMETRY storage data type.
