Thank you for running an article on Pennsylvania’s abandoned wells. The story reported that there are about 200,000 orphaned and abandoned wells. Actually, about 184,000 are known to exist, but estimates put the total number as high as 325,000. By the Department of Environmental Protection’s own admission, it would take 160 years to cap the known wells, something they reported prior to the start of Marcellus drilling in Pennsylvania.
