The IPRB was formed to provide public awareness and education programs and to clean up
abandoned well sites throughout the state. Funding for IPRB programs comes from voluntary
contributions of oil and natural gas producers and royalty owners in Illinois.
IPRB provides funding and expertise in the reclamation and restoration of abandoned oilfield
sites in the State of Illinois. These restoration projects fulfill another goal of IPRB which is to
restore abandoned sites previously used for oil and gas production back to commercial or
agricultural use for current land owners.
IPRB offers a free, Annual IL Crude Oil and Natural Gas Education Conference and Curriculum
Workshop for Science and Math Teachers, grades 4-12, giving them a chance to learn first hand
