    UK onshore oil wells are not “hidden”
    All their locations are available online here
    Although some shown are capped wells and not all are producers.
    What evidence is there production has increased?
    There is usually an optimum rate to drain a field through the main producer.
    If you exceed it you can shorten the life of the field.
    Of course if the oil price is very high there may be an economic benefit
    That ameliorates this disadvantage…
    At £5-10 million a well disregarding the cost of shooting seismic
    I doubt anyone would be rushing to cap them immediately…
    Anyway, I just thought I’d share the map for anyone else
    Who wants to go on their own tour of Britain’s nodding donkeys
