U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke announced today that Wyoming’s energy and minerals production disbursements, through the Interior Office of Natural Resources Revenue (ONRR), totaled just over $669 million dollars in Fiscal Year 2017 (FY 2017). This represents an increase of nearly $5 million dollars from the previous year’s total. The funds are derived from energy and minerals produced on Federal and Indian lands, as well as U.S. offshore areas.
“Under President Trump’s American Energy Dominance agenda, we’ve increased energy funds by a billion dollars nationally, and by almost five million in Wyoming in our first year alone. That money goes right back to communities for things like public works projects, educational improvements, conservation and parks, and infrastructure upgrades,” Secretary Zinke said.
“The last Administration boasted about increased energy development, but neglected to mention that most of it was on private land,​​”​ ​Senator Michael B. Enzi said. “This increased energy production on federal land is a welcome development in my state. It has a huge positive impact on Wyomingites, but benefits our whole country and restores American energy dominance.”
All Federal, non-renewable energy revenues are collected, accounted for, analyzed, audited, and disbursed by ONRR from energy and mineral leases and other monies owed for the use of public resources on the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf and onshore Federal and American Indian lands. Since 1982, ONRR has disbursed more than $294 billion in mineral leasing revenues. ONRR makes most disbursements on a monthly basis from the royalties, rents and bonuses it collects from energy and mineral companies operating on federal lands and waters.
