OAR 141-070-0030
Geophysical Survey Permit

A geophysical survey permit is required from the Division to explore state-owned land for potential oil and gas resources. A permit may be requested in writing from the Division’s mineral leasing manager and will be issued, if approved, on a form approved by the Director. Each application for a geophysical survey permit shall be accompanied by a $50.00 processing fee:


The geophysical survey permit allows surface entry to explore the subsurface by techniques acceptable to the Division.


Permission to conduct surveys across state leased lands must be obtained from state’s lessee prior to surface entry.


The geophysical survey permit does not grant any rights to extract oil and gas nor grant any preference rights to an oil and gas lease.


The Director may require the permittee to submit a post-exploration map to the Division identifying the exact location of all tests conducted.
