Oklahomans know that the oil industry has a significant impact on our state, but do you know just how big that impact really is?
Check out what one rig operating fully for one year does for our state:
• Supports 681 jobs
• Drives $195.6 million in economic activity
• Spawns $4.2 million in local and state taxes
Impressed? Multiply those numbers by 123 – the number of active horizontal long lateral wells operating in Oklahoma as you read this.
Thanks to the Oklahoma Oil & Gas Association for commissioning the study to discover the economic impact of drilling in our great state.
