OERB Restores 10,000th site in Bricktown

Despite frigid temperatures, the Oklahoma Energy Resources Board, the Oklahoma Corporation Commission and the Oklahoma City Fire Department will join to celebrate a milestone on OERB’s path toward restoring Oklahoma’s vast landscape.
Today, OERB celebrates the restoration of its 10,000th well site and $57 million spent since the program’s inception in 1994. The site is located in what was once the heart of the Oklahoma City Oil Field at the northwest corner of Lincoln Boulevard and Sheridan Avenue. Once restored, it will become the home of the new Bricktown Fire Station.
The OERB Executive Director Mindy Stitt, Oklahoma Corporation Commissioner Jeff Cloud, Vice Mayor Pete White and Oklahoma City Fire Chief Keith Bryant will speak about the significance of cleaning up this abandoned site.
Created by the Oklahoma Legislature, the OERB is funded voluntarily by oil and natural gas producers and royalty owners through a one-tenth of 1 percent assessment on the sale of oil and natural gas. The OERB’s purpose is to conduct environmental restoration of orphaned and abandoned well sites and to educate Oklahomans about energy.
