Western producers are proud to provide 21% of the nation’s oil and 25% of natural gas production while impacting less than 0.07 percent of public lands.

The western E&P industry supports 268,110 jobs and generates $84.3 billion in annual economic impact nationwide. The E&P industry supports thriving rural communities across the West with revenue for schools, roads, safety and other vital public services, while promoting additional activity in many other industries such as agriculture, recreation and manufacturing.
