Water Canada publishes an article by Tyson Wagner and Megan Kennedy on end-of-life environmental stewardship for Alberta’s oil and gas resources:
Oil and gas are well known as cornerstones of Alberta’s economy. The nature of the industry necessarily exposes the province’s water resources to certain risk of contamination. The Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) assess and issues licenses to access and exploit oil and gas resources subject to various end-of-life obligations regarding abandonment and reclamation of affected areas.
