Vermilion – Tenwell #1

Important Information Updates: The Orphan Well Association (OWA), in conjunction with the Alberta Energy Regulator and Alberta Health Services, has developed a long-term strategy to manage methane from the well located in the playground in the Brennan subdivision. Click for details on the Long-term Management Program and this fall’s Methane Interception Operation undertaken in September.

Installation of a New Vent Stack

After the successful completion of Methane Interception Operation (Phase 1of the Long-term Management Program) in September, monitoring suggested a taller vent stack is needed. Work on the new vent stack will start on Tuesday, November 3 and take about six days. While crews are on site installing the new vent stack, they will also modify the shed which houses the Active Methane Management System (AMMS). This should reduce the noise level from the AMMS. See our latest update for more details.

If you have questions about the Long-term Management Program, please contact us by email at community@orphanwell.ca.
