Title: AFMSS 2 Electronic NOS & APD Training for Operators

This page contains resources for Oil and Gas operators or agents to learn how to file electronic NOS, APD, Sundry Notices, and Well Completion documents with BLM Field Offices under the AFMSS 2 application. AFMSS 2 has replaced the internal AFMSS and external WIS applications will from now on be referred to as AFMSS.

The first section of this page has the training videos, and the bottom half contains written documentation such as the Operator User Guide followed by a list of release summaries that explain changes that have been made to the system.

AFMSS replaces the Well Information System (WIS) for all electronic filings of NOS, APD, Sundry Notices, and Well Completion Reports.
