Economic Impact of Drilling in Oklahoma


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 rigs 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.
