Oklahoma City is energy’s bedrock
Well-known for being a global oil capital (as well as for having a working oil well on the grounds of the Oklahoma State Capitol), Oklahoma City's energy industry has developed significantly from its oil-intense beginnings. The Bakken-led shift to oil has been dramatic, part of a robust drive toward U.S. energy independence. Hundreds of energy companies here are growing rapidly, responding to the extraordinary opportunity the industry offers today. Importantly, all components are represented – large and small independents, midstream companies, service businesses, startups and spinoffs.
