Well, well, well.
Groups representing rural landowners will meet with some NDP
government MLAs in Strathmore on Friday to discuss concerns over
Alberta’s inactive oil and gas wells.
“We’ll be presenting what has gone wrong with the Surface Rights Act
and the number of companies that are going into bankruptcy, the number
of orphan wells that are coming on every day,” said Don Bester,
president of the Alberta Surface Rights Group, which, along with Alberta
Action Surface Rights, will meet with up to 11 rural MLAs.
“We will be giving them recommendations on how the government can handle it.”
