Abandonment & Regulation

Abandonment / Re-abandonment of Wells

Abandonment or re-abandonment of oil or gas wells may be necessary depending on the location and condition of the well. A well abandoned to a lesser standard than currently required by the DOGGR may have to be re-abandoned to today's standards.

Regulations for abandonment can be found in the Signal Hill Municipal Code:
