The Drillings™ is your definitive source for the status and ownership of crude oil and natural gas leases.

The Drillings™ provides data on the locations, status, and ownership of oil and gas leases on public land. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) grants individuals and companies petroleum exploration rights on public land. Curious about recent Petroleum Exploration activity in an area or the shifting ownership of lands? The Drillings™ is a source to see where these oil and gas leases are and have been.

A Shifting Landscape

New claims are being filed, auctioned, or resold through private sales. While claims change hands, become active or closed, or have new actions filed, we are updating our records to make this information available to everyone.

We are changing too. The Drillings™ is constantly updating and refining content to make it easier to access and add new, useful features for our users. Have an idea of what you would like to see or explore business opportunities? Contact us!

Energy resources for everyone

The BLM also leases land for a wide variety of other energy types. We share information on public coal mining claims through The Coal Fields™.
