ATTENTION: The "Scanned Documents" are in DjVu format. In order to view, you must be using a Windows operating system with either Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Chrome version 44 and below. You must view the documents in a browser, and in order to do this, you must install the plug-in (it only takes a few seconds to install):
  • All Users: Due to increasing DjVu format incompatibilities, KGS is now in the process of converting all the oil and gas documents to the more accessible PDF format. This process has started, and we expect to be completed by early (Jan or Feb) 2016. Read more about KGS use of DjVu format and this conversion process.

    This is a helpful FAQ (outside link from the University of Georgia) about viewing DjVu documents on different platforms.

  • Google Chrome Users: A DjVu plugin is no longer available for Google Chrome version 45 and above. Use Firefox or Internet Explorer.

  • Mobile and Stand-Alone Application (non-browser) Users: Due to their specific format, the KGS DJVU files cannot be viewed in stand-alone applications. This means that mobile users (iOS, Android, etc) may have issues displaying the documents on a device.

  • Mac Users: A DjVu plugin is no longer available for any browser in OSX or above. The only workaround at this point is to use a Windows operating system (and use Firefox or Internet Explorer).
