How do I identify the first year there are permits available for a state?

Discover the earliest permit date accessible in WellDatabase for a particular state, basin, or any other area of interest with ease.

Apply a filter to the desired state or area of interest. Next, proceed to the overview tab in the analytics section. In the example provided, data from the entire state of Texas is being aggregated and the first permit date is on 3/19/1910.

Alternatively, you navigate to the Explore tab and choose States. From there, you can search for Texas to access the same aggregated data mentioned above. This approach can also be utilized for other choices in the explore dropdown, such as plays or basins.
