Office of Natural Resources Revenue
The Office of Natural Resources Revenue (ONRR), part of the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Office of the Assistant Secretary for Policy, Management and Budget, collects, accounts for, analyzes, audits and disburses revenues associated with energy and mineral leasing on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) and onshore Federal and American Indian lands. The ONRR fulfills part of the Department’s Indian trust responsibility by serving as a trustee of the mineral revenue assets generated from American Indian trust properties and as an advocate for the interests of Indian mineral owners. The ONRR collects and disburses approximately $11 billion in annual revenues to the U.S. Treasury, special-use Federal accounts, five Federal agencies, 36 states, 41 American Indian Tribes, and approximately 30,000 individual Indian mineral owners. ONRR makes disbursements on a monthly basis from royalties, rents and bonuses it collects from mineral companies.
