Well Abandonment

Did you know? Companies must follow strict requirements primarily set out in Directive 020: Well Abandonment, to ensure that the public and environment are protected before, during, and after a well is abandoned. There are several stages that must be completed.
There are many cases were wells do not get cut and capped because of lack of funds or the organization goes bankrupt. There are an estimated 100,000 wells in Alberta that are inactive or abandoned.
