Common questions

Orphan oil and gas wells no longer have an operator to maintain or remediate them and have become the responsibility of state, federal, or tribal governments.

There are a variety of ways these wells are left behind; from lack of proper paperwork to decline in operator resources. Whatever the reason, there are far more un-identified orphan wells than anyone is currently able to document.

As these wells age, they can pose risks to human health and well-being and threaten our natural resources.
If you have a non-producing oil and gas well on your property, give us a call and we can help determine its status.
Give us a call and we will direct you to the proper regulatory agency to report an orphan well.
Yes, all oil and gas wells can be dangerous and should be avoided without proper training, safety equipment, etc…
The first step is to report the well. We can help you do so AND start it on the road to being plugged!
