Global Fossil Infrastructure Tracker
The Global Fossil Infrastructure Tracker aggregates information from wiki pages on oil and gas projects such as pipelines, terminals, and offshore drilling platforms. Each wiki page is a footnoted online fact sheet that can expand over time, providing a series of snapshots across the spectrum of fossil infrastructure projects worldwide. Users of the data can zoom in for individual project data such as size, ownership, location, and developmental status, or zoom out for countrywide or regional summaries, either in the form of data summaries (to be posted soon—stay tuned) or on the interactive project maps and tables posted at OilWire.org. This makes the Global Fossil Infrastructure Tracker useful not just as a one-time view of the global fleet of fossil infrastructure, but as a resource that can follow the industry’s development over time.
