Well Maintenance

State Well Pad

Our highest priority is to conduct our business in a manner that protects the safety and welfare of communities, our employees, and the environment.

 

Last year elective soil vapor sampling on the State pad identified an isolated area of gas in the shallow soil. As part of further evaluation, we decided to re-enter the wells to locate and seal the potential source of gas. Re-entering the wellbores to evaluate plug integrity and then re-plugging the wells is a challenging and time-consuming process. Although the process is taking longer than we initially anticipated, nothing we have encountered has been unexpected. While our operations are visible to the community, we believe the benefit of re-plugging these wells outweighs the short-term visual impact.

 

Our evaluation and testing continue to show no risk to the community or environment. In addition, there are no detectable environmental impacts beyond the fenced project area. Since we began continuous air monitoring at this location in August 2021, there’s been no instance where levels approached the Health Guidance Value. We will continue to post project updates and air monitoring reports here.

 

Background: Last year, our teams detected methane in an isolated, below-ground area near the recently retired State 30-16 well approximately 5 feet below the surface. We notified the appropriate local and state entities and took the following safety measures:

·         installed continuous air monitoring,

·         placed a fence around the location, and

·         added additional subsurface sampling points for further testing.
