Using the Document Database

KMD LogoIn this search form you can search the title and abstract of documents that have been stored in an SQL database. The more key words that are entered by the user will allow a more focused search (e.g. Appalachian Basin Shale Gas drilling) and return the most relevant results with the most recent date. This database includes oil and gas documents from the CD/DVD library, the NETL Internet site, the NETL Project Management Information System (ProMIS), the Tulsa Project Office, and links to hardcopy documents currently available from the NETL library. Links to relevant offsite documents from the Office of Science and Technical Information (OSTI) are also included.

Restricted Characters in searches

The use of characters such as !, @, #, $, %, ^, &, (, and ) will/can cause an error if used.

Using the CD/DVD Database

In this search form you can search entire documents that have been indexed with a typical “Google” search engine.  This search function allows the user to search all of the CDs and DVDs of oil and gas research reports compiled from past R&D programs as well as currently available documents from the NETL Internet site (i.e. SCNGO and Section 999, etc.).  Some older documents that were scanned and saved as PDF files may contain limited optical character recognition (OCR). The user can download individual reports or order an entire CD or DVD. The more key words that are entered by the user will allow a more focused search (e.g. Appalachian Basin Shale Gas drilling) and return the most relevant results. The user can also select a CD/DVD link below and use the same navigation that is present on the native CD/DVD to select documents.
