The Bureau of Land Management Oklahoma Field Office manages 7.4 million acres of Federally owned land and minerals in the states of Oklahoma, Kansas, and Texas. The Field Office administers the extraction, use, and sale of Federal minerals (primarily oil, gas, and coal), and guarantees environmental compliance, production accountability, and the subsequent rehabilitation of surface lands.
The Field Office also provides oversight to Indian mineral owners by ensuring oil and gas operations on Indian lands are conducted according to lease terms and conditions, approved plans, and existing laws and regulations.
The Oklahoma BLM also administers an active Wild Horse and Burro Program that accounts for 20 percent of the annual adoption target for the entire Bureau. Based in Moore, OK, the Wild Horse and Burro staff conducts 12-15 satellite adoptions per year in locations throughout New Mexico’s four-state jurisdiction resulting in the adoption of nearly 600 animals annually.
Oklahoma Field Office staff -- approximately 70 employees -- currently operate out of two main offices in Tulsa and Moore, Oklahoma. In general, Tulsa houses environmental and engineering staff, while Moore houses inspection and enforcement, production accountability, and wild horse and burro staff. A small number of staff are remotely located in surrounding states for operational reasons.
