The Orphan Well Adoption Agency (OWAA) is dedicated to finding caretakers for abandoned oil and gas wells through symbolic adoptions.

In an effort towards remediation, the OWAA* is experimenting with new and unconventional approaches to site reading and assessment.


*Please note: The Orphan Well Adoption Agency (OWAA) is not to be confused with The Orphan Well Association (OWA), a not-for-profit association funded by the oil and gas industry that manages the abandonment of Alberta upstream oil and gas orphan wells and the reclamation their sites. OWAA has no affiliation with the OWA, the Alberta Energy Regulator and is not funded by the oil and gas industry.
