    Completed in 2012, the 50 story Devon Energy Center dominates the Oklahoma City skyline with its sleek (and energy efficient) design.  Come out and take advantage of this rare opportunity to tour the LEED Gold Certified skyscraper.  The 90 minute tour consists of a quarter-mile walk around the center and an elevator ride to the top of Devon Tower. 

    Devon is proud to share its addition to the Oklahoma City skyline with the community. The 50-story tower within the Devon Energy Center serves as the office home to the company’s more than 2,000 employees and contractors, and the ground floor of the building is open to the public.

    Devon had a clear vision for this building: While the space would primarily serve as the company's headquarters for its oil and natural gas operations, the building would also be a welcoming place for the community. As a result, the building features two dining options, a coffee shop, a park area and seasonal events for the public to enjoy.

    For more information, visit:


    Attendees will be responsible for their own transportation to Oklahoma City and back.  Please arrive no later than 10:15AM for the tour.  Space is limited to 20 registrants.

    A few important tour guidelines:



    Visitor parking for tours is available at the southeast entrance of the parking garage on the first floor, located just north of the building at 101 North Harvey. A parking garage attendant will greet you and ask for your name before granting access.



    Plan to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your tour. Upon entering the Devon Energy Center Rotunda, tour guests can take the escalators to the second floor and meet at the tour sign or wait in the seating areas until the tour guide arrives.


    While all ages are welcome, we recommend that children be at least five years old.


    If there is interest, reservations can be made for dinner at Vast, the restaurant located on the 49th floor.  The restaurant opens at 4PM.

    Saturday, October 17 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
