Oklahoma Wells Drilled 2021

Oklahoma is in the heart of the U.S. Mid-Continent oil region that had 620 wells drilled in 2021. The U.S. Mid-Continent oil region is a vast oil- and natural gas-producing area that also encompasses Kansas, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, and New Mexico and is flanked by the Mississippi River to the east and the Rocky Mountain states to the west.

Oklahoma’s proved natural gas reserves are the fifth-largest in the nation, after Texas, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Louisiana. The state has 7% of the nation’s total proved reserves and contains all or part of 14 of the 100 largest U.S. natural gas fields as measured by proved reserves.

Oklahoma has about 5% of the nation’s proved crude oil reserves. Between 2007 and 2019, the state’s proved crude oil reserves more than quadrupled. In 2020, Oklahoma was the fourth-largest oil producer among the states and accounted for 4% of the nation’s total annual crude oil production.

Oil and Gas Compact Commission (IOGCC), headquartered in Oklahoma City, was created to ensure responsible development of crude oil resources through the coordinated efforts of oil-producing states. The voluntary IOGCC has grown from an association of 6 oil-producing member-states in 1935 to 31 member-states and 7 associate member-states in 2021.
