Cleanups hit $75 million mark

The Oklahoma Energy Resources Board now has spent more than $75 million to clean up abandoned oil and natural gas well sites around the state. OERB's cleanup fund is funded voluntarily by the state's oil and gas industry. “Through the cooperation of people in government and private industry, we are improving the value of Oklahoma, its aesthetics and the beauty of the countryside,” OERB Chairman Ronnie Irani said. “Many Oklahomans rely on their land for their livelihood and we are honored to help them achieve their dreams.” OERB has restored more than 12,000 old well sites, working in 67 of the state's 77 counties.
