What Oil and Natural Gas Mean to Big-Energy Oklahoma

Oklahoma is all about oil, natural gas and, increasingly, wind energy.

Roughly one-quarter of all jobs in Oklahoma are tied to the energy industry, either directly or indirectly, says Mickey Hepner, an economist and Dean of the University of Central Oklahoma’s College of Business Administration.

The state has a unique historical stake in the oil industry, but Oklahoma today is as much an energy state as perhaps it’s ever been, Hepner says, and oil and natural gas helped the state survive the recent recession.
