Dominion Energy Submits Application To Plug 3 Wells At Oakford Natural Gas Storage Complex In Westmoreland County

Dominion Energy Transmissions has filed an application for Section 401 Water Quality Certification with DEP to plug three wells it is abandoning at the Oakford Natural Gas Storage Complex in Hempfield Township, Westmoreland County.  (Feb. 1 PA Bulletin, page 737)
According to the permit application, the three wells were originally drilled for production in 1917 and then transferred to storage facility service in 1961 as “future storage” wells, but they were never used to provide storage service and are therefore proposed for plugging and abandonment.
In addition, the pipelines associated with the wells will be cut and capped for abandonment.
For more information on submitting comments and on the application, read the entire PA Bulletin notice.  (Feb. 1 PA Bulletin, page 737)
