Check out the Well Done Foundation's Carbon Elimination Scorecard

As of October 18, 2020
Each orphan well plugged by the Well Done Foundation delivers the immediate elimination of Methane (CH4), a harmful greenhouse gas that is 25 times more powerful than Carbon Dioxide (CO2).
With the recent completion of Anderson #7, we are pleased to update our Carbon Elimination Scorecard! By comparison, the Nature Conservancy has estimated that the average person in the United States has an annual carbon footprint equal to 16 tons of Carbon Dioxide.

Anderson #7 Orphan Well Update

October 18, 2020
Thanks to the generous support of New York Businessman, Mr. Joel Citron, the Anderson #7 Well was plugged and the methane emissions were eliminated on October 2, 2020!

Today, after 91 years, the surface area has been fully restored and will be ready for cultivation in the next crop planting cycle.  Surface Owner and Local Farmer, Sam Stewart has signed off on the Well Done Foundation’s work and we are finalizing the reporting with the State of Montana.

The Well Done Foundation Team now begins the post closure monitoring of this completed project. BRAVO and thanks to all who have helped deliver this huge win for the Environment, the Community and the Industry by showing what us possible when we work together to make a difference, one well at a time!
