Making the land useful again.

The people of Oklahoma Oil & Natural Gas have voluntarily invested more than $125 million to clean up orphaned and abandoned well sites left by companies that no longer exist – over 17,500 sites in all – at absolutely no cost to landowners.

This practical and economical four-step restoration process follows recognized environmental standards. Common restoration requirements include:

  • Removing or burying lease roads and location pads.
  • Removing equipment, concrete, trash and debris.
  • Repairing erosion and saltwater “scars” left on the land.
  • Treating hydrocarbons and closing pits.
