AOGCC Orphan Well Plugging and Remediation Program

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (Pub. L. 117-58) passed Congress on November 5, 2021. This Act provides, under Section 40601(c)(3), for historic investments to plug orphaned wells and reclaim abandoned mine lands, to help communities eliminate dangerous environmental conditions and pollution caused by legacy energy development. The Act allows state officials to begin building out their well plugging programs, remediating high-priority wells, and collecting additional data regarding the number of orphaned wells in their states. This grant award reflects the substantive application of the Act as it relates to the State of Alaska.
