[ARCHIVED] Davis 43-6 plugged and abandoned well casing found

On November 4, 2019, the COGCC located the well casing of the Davis 43-6 plugged and abandoned well.

On November 4, 2019, the COGCC located the well casing of the Davis 43-6 plugged and abandoned well.  

The COGCC located the well casing after removing a section of pavement on Graham Peak Way and excavating to approximately 16 feet below the surface.  Now that the well casing has been located, the COGCC will continue efforts to repair the well including:

  • stabilizing the area between the top of the well casing and the surface;

  • removing the welded steel plate at the top of the casing;

  • bringing in a truck mounted workover rig to drill down approximately 2,500 feet through cement plugs at various intervals inside the well; and

  • replugging and cementing the well at various intervals back up to the top of the well casing.

It is estimated that this work will take no more than two weeks.   Gas monitors are used throughout the process and there have been no readings of concern to date.
