FIRESTONE — Work has begun by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation to remove two existing wells and the associated facilities on the Oak Meadows neighborhood in Firestone. This procedure — referred to as “plug and abandonment” — takes place as a means to restore the area when a well is no longer economically producing.
The activity on the two wells is expected to take until month’s end to complete. Residents will see a work-over rig, cement trucks, water trucks and other heavy equipment in the area. The removal of the associated facility will take an additional month to month and a half. Once this work is complete, residents will see crews on site to restore the surface locations back to the existing landscape.
Crews will be working Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. An Anadarko representative will be on location 24/7 throughout the operation.
For more information, Anadarko information is posted on the Town’s website at www.firestoneco.gov/index.aspx?nid=377 about the removal. Individuals are encouraged to call the Anadarko Response Line at 800-248-9577 or email email@example.com with any additional questions.
