The mission of the Oil and Gas Commission is to prevent waste and encourage conservation of the Arkansas oil, natural gas, and brine resources, to protect the correlative rights associated with those resources, and to respect the environment during the production, extraction, and transportation of those resources.

Our vision is to serve the citizens of Arkansas and the community with an efficient, effective, scientific, and technically based regulatory framework to support economic development for Arkansas.
