The data displayed on this website represent key components used in ONRR’s mission, to ensure the full and fair return to the American people of Federal and Indian royalties and other monies owed for the utilization of public resources in the production of conventional and renewable energy and mineral resources.
– Represent payments that ONRR makes to American Indian Tribes and Allottees; States and their Counties, Parishes, and Boroughs; Federal agencies; various special purpose funds; and the U.S. Treasury. Disbursements come from collected revenues.
Reported Revenue Data
– Represent royalties, rents, bonuses, and other revenues that mineral royalty payors report to ONRR. The royalty transactions include sales volumes, sales values, and royalties. Reported revenue data can be summarized by Accounting Date or Sales Date; please see the
FAQ for an explanation of these data sets and their intended uses.
The Additional Information page contains material related to ONRR revenues and disbursements including the Year in Review, Frequently Asked Questions, and several energy related links.
We update our web site with Disbursement and Reported Royalty data by Accounting Year in November, and add Reported Royalty data by Sales Year in the following February. It is important to note that our Accounting Year data represent all transactions accepted into our Financial System during a given fiscal year including adjustments and corrections for sales that took place in previous fiscal years. Accounting Year data is most useful, when analyzing the dollars ONRR collects and disburses in a given fiscal year. Because they include adjusted and corrected transactions for previous sales periods, Accounting Year data should not be used for trending purposes or for analyzing sales volumes.
