The data currently available mainly come from the activities of the companies that have undertaken mining operations on French territory. Since 1958, the administration has collected information on wells and geophysical data acquisition surveys.

With the exception of data collected during onshore hydrocarbon exploration activities that is immediately communicable to a third party, the data collected do not fall in the public domain (unless the author of the works authorizes it) before a period of 10 years from the date of their acquisition.
