Devon Energy Oil and Gas Park
The story of oil and gas exploration and discovery is a tale of risk, innovation, fortunes won and lost, spectacular successes, and dramatic challenges. The Devon Energy Oil and Gas Exploration Park at the Oklahoma History Center interprets some of the technology that is part of the fascinating history of Oklahoma’s oil industry. Technological innovations in Oklahoma oil fields revolutionized petroleum production worldwide and greatly expanded the industry.
The Devon Energy Oil and Gas Park explores the drilling, production, and transportation phases of the Oklahoma oil and gas industry. Much of the equipment located in the park was donated to the Oklahoma Historical Society in the mid-1960s in an effort to begin the Mid-Continent Oil Museum. Oklahoma oil fields are part of the huge Mid-Continent Oil Region, which stretches from central Texas, across Oklahoma, to eastern Kansas.
