The book shall be a public record open to inspection at all reasonable times during office hours. A copy of any rule, order or other document on file in the office of the commission and certified by the commission shall be received in evidence in all courts of the state with the same effect as the original.

Well logs, casing records, compiled data and other information shall be properly indexed and suitably recorded in the permanent records of the commission and shall be open to inspection by the public at all reasonable times during office hours. The well records of a well drilled in unproven territory shall not be subject to inspection for a period of one year after drilling is completed. The commission shall provide sixty days' notice to the operator before records become subject to inspection. At the operator's request, the commission shall extend the confidential period for not more than two years from the date of the request if the operator can provide credible evidence that disclosure of the information is likely to cause harm to the operator's competitive position. The director of water resources may inspect any well records at any time but shall keep confidential all information that is not subject to inspection as otherwise provided in this section.
