The General Land Office oversees over 13 million acres of land and mineral rights on behalf of the Permanent School Fund (PSF).
The GLO manages state oil and gas leases and has been able to deposit more than $16.8 billion into the PSF as a result. We also use Texas’s vast natural gas deposits to create electricity for schools and other public customers who purchase it at a low rate, thereby saving our schools money on electricity bills while still earning revenue for the PSF.
The GLO has created a dedicated website for our energy business customers. If you are in the energy business and do business with the GLO, please visit the new Energy Business Website.
