Missouri Oil Production by YearOil was discovered in Missouri shortly after the Civil War when water wells were being drilled near Kansas City. Missouri has seen a marked increase in the production of oil in the last several years. Although Missouri has limited supplies of traditional hydrocarbons, relatively large deposits of “heavy oil” exist that are of increasing interest to producers. Missouri potentially has large quantities of "unconventional" energy resources that include: coalbed methane, oil sand and oil shale. New technologies and efficient, environmentally responsible oil production strengthen Missouri’s future and result in increased economic benefit to the state through jobs and revenue. Gas production numbers have been collected by the state’s Geological Survey since 1928, and oil production number have been collected since 1931.

The Missouri Geological Survey is responsible, in part, for activities associated with the exploration, production and subsurface storage of oil and gas in Missouri.  A portion of these responsibilities include reviewing, approving and maintaining applications to drill oil and gas production wells, underground injection control wells (enhanced oil recovery, disposal and hydrocarbon storage wells). The oil and gas database contains permits for more than 12,000 wells.  Well status includes under construction, active, inactive, plugged and abandoned.

Oil and Gas Council Orders


State Oil and Gas Council

The State Oil and Gas Council publishes rules and regulations that apply to oil and gas drilling and producing operations to foster and promote orderly and economic development, production and use of natural resources of oil and gas.

The State Oil and Gas Council is composed of the director, or his or her appointee, of the following agencies:

Two other persons knowledgeable about the oil and gas industry are appointed to the council by the governor with the advice and consent of the Senate.

When the requirements of 10 CSR 50-2.010 through 50-2.110 and chapters 259 RSMo have been complied with, the authority to engage in oil and gas drilling or producing operations will be granted by the state geologist.
