Land Plats illustrate in map view the oil or gas Spacing Areas delimited in a pool, and names the geological formation in which the pool is recognised. Land Plats are the sole official record of where the Director of PandNG Titles Branch recognizes a pool of hydrocarbons to exist for the purpose of administering oil and gas title

Additional Information

Purpose

Land Plats (LP) are the sole official record of where the Director of Petroleum Land recognizes a pool of hydrocarbons to exist for the purpose of administering oil and gas title. To the extent an LP is identical to the rights held by a Lease, that Lease is eligible, under the PNG Act, to have that portion of its rights extended beyond the original primary term.

Object Description

Object Name: WHSE_MINERAL_TENURE.PNG_LAND_PLATS_SP

Short Name: PNGLNDPLTS
Comments: Land Plats (LP) are the sole official record of where the Director of Petroleum Land recognizes a pool of hydrocarbons to exist for the purpose of administering oil and gas title. To the extent an LP is identical to the rights held by a Lease, that Lease is eligible, under the PNG Act, to have that portion of its rights extended beyond the original primary term. The spatial boundaries of all LPs are defined so that they correspond exactly with the units of the PNG Grid or the quarter-sections of the Dominion Land Survey.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
LAND_PLAT_ID UNIQUE_ID VARCHAR2 50 LAND_PLAT_ID is comprised of its 4-digit tenure area code prefixed by the letters TA, a 4-digit formation code, a formation sequence code up to 3 characters or a well location if pool falls within Other Areas, and a 3 character fluid type code. This is a primary key maintained by buisness area. e.g., TA4470-8200-A-GAS
TENURE_AREA_CODE TA_CODE VARCHAR2 10 TENURE_AREA_CODE contains 'TA' (short for Tenure Area) plus TA code together. Tenure Areas Code can be joined with TA Code table which names each code. e.g., TA6000
TENURE_AREA_NAME TA_NAME VARCHAR2 50 TENURE_AREA_NAME contains the geographical name corresponds with location. e.g., Milligan Creek
FORMATION_CODE FORM_CODE VARCHAR2 4 FORMATION_CODE (Stratigraphy Code) consists of a certain number of rock strata that have a comparable lithology (rocks physical characteristics-colour, texture, grain size or composition), facies (distinct rock units) or other similar properties. e.g., 8200
FORMATION_NAME FORM_NAME VARCHAR2 50 FORMATION_NAME contains the formation name corresponding to FORMATION_CODE. e.g., Baldonnel
POOL_SEQUENCE POOL_SEQ VARCHAR2 16 POOL_SEQUENCE is used to separate naming of Pools in the same formation and location. e.g., A, B, C, to Z
POOL_FLUID_TYPE FLUID_TYPE VARCHAR2 5 POOL_FLUID_TYPE indicates the fluid type of the Pool. e.g., Oil, Gas or OG (Oil and Gas combined).
POOL_STATUS STATUS VARCHAR2 15 POOL_STATUS indicates the status of the Pool. e.g., Active or Depleted.
PUBLICATION_DATE PUB_DATE DATE 7 PUBLICATION_DATE is a release date of Land Plat to public.
PUBLICATION_REMARKS RUB_REMRKS VARCHAR2 250 PUBLICATION_REMARKS contains public information regarding a pool. e.g., OTNS (Other Than Normal Spacing)
GEOMETRY GEOMETRY SDO_GEOMETRY 1 GEOMETRY 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 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.
FEATURE_AREA_SQM NUMBER 19 FEATURE_AREA_SQM is the system calculated area of a two-dimensional polygon in square meters
FEATURE_LENGTH_M NUMBER 19 FEATURE_LENGTH_M is the system calculated length or perimeter of a geometry in meters
