The Alberta Energy Regulator’s recent enforcement against Lexin Resources, placed a large portion of the company’s assets into the care of Alberta’s Orphan Well Association(OWA). Currently, in the OWA database, there are 697 wells under reclamation and 1590 wells to be abandoned–however that number will rise by several hundred after Lexin’s wells are added to the list.
Here is a map of wells in Alberta with the most current data from the Orphan Well Association:
