LFTP All the Things

A few years ago, I needed to find as much LAS data for wells in Texas as I could. There isn’t much public data available for wells in Texas, but the University of Texas, endowed with a significant land grant, does provide free public access to a lot of wireline log data for wells on their lands. The catch is that it is only accessible via FTP. Now, I love using python for everything as much as the next guy, but sometimes python is not the right tool for the job.
