Midland Energy Library is a non-profit library established in 1984-85 to house and preserve scientific petroleum data for
present and future researchers and explorationists in the oil and gas industry. Over 200 companies and individuals supported the project with the purchase of library memberships, and foundation grants were received for the purchase of equipment.
Since the library opening in May, 1986, the library data base has strongly grown with a continuing stream of industry contributions.
Midland Energy Library is currently building a digital data base for preservation and ease of access of the library’s rare and valuable data. This is just one of the ways Midland Energy Library is progressing to provide better service for it’s members. We thank you for your continuing contributions and support and we look forward to a bright future serving the oil and gas industry of the Permian Basin.
