About OilTrails

Navigating the Roads Less Travelled

Born from the needs of Alberta oilpatch workers in 2012, OilTrails started as a simple LSD finder solution to the confusing directions often provided by dispatch. Originally designed to provide precise navigation to Legal Sub-Divisions (LSDs), our app has significantly expanded its capabilities over the years.

Today, OilTrails offers comprehensive features including offline LSD and National Topographic System (NTS) lookups, detailed well data for enhanced site accuracy, and real-time weather updates. Users can also choose from multiple navigation providers for optimal route planning. Our user-friendly interface ensures you can effortlessly reach remote oil and gas sites across Western Canada.

Available on iOS, Android, and via our web app, OilTrails ensures a seamless experience across all devices and is your trusted lease locator.
