    Natural resource ownership in the U.S. is closely tied to land ownership. Land can be owned by citizens, corporations, Indian tribes or individuals, or governments (for instance, federal, state, or local governments). Much of the data on this site is limited to natural resource extraction on federal land, which represents 1.6% of all land in Oklahoma.

    Production

    Energy production: The U.S. Energy Information Administration publishes a profile of energy production and usage in Oklahoma.

    Oklahoma ranks among the top five states in the U.S. for production of:

    • Wind: #3 in the nation (8% of U.S. production)
    • Natural gas: #4 in the nation (7% of U.S. production)
    • Crude oil: #5 in the nation (4% of U.S. production)

    Nonenergy minerals: The U.S. Geological Survey publishes information about nonenergy mineral extraction in the USGS Minerals Yearbook for Oklahoma.

    The Energy Information Administration collects data about all energy-related natural resources produced on federal, state, and privately owned land.
