Wells In My Back Yard

Do you have an abandoned oil or gas well in your back yard? Are you sure? Oil & Gas wells have been drilled in Canada since the early 1900's, but it wasn't until the 1960's that rules & regulations were codified and enforced around the process of abandonment. So, like Calmar AB discovered, you could have an abandoned well in your back yard and never know it.
