About OilTrails

Navigating the Roads Less Travelled

OilTrails was created in 2012 by workers in the Alberta oilpatch that were tired of following obscure directions from dispatch. At the time, the app simply gave directions to Legal Sub-Divisions, or LSD's. Since then the app has evolved to incorporate offline LSD and NTS lookups, well data that gives greater accuracy, on-site weather, offline LSD lookups and navigation, the choice between multiple navigation providers, and much more. All wrapped in an easy to use interface that makes getting to location a snap.
