The Oklahoma Corporation Commission has launched a campaign to attract private firms interested in helping with the state’s federally-funded well plugging program.

Those firms already with a contract under a previous solicitation were advised not to apply again. The program is for licensed well pluggers only. For those interested in getting a well plugging license in order to take part in the program, they were urged to  contact Brad Ice (brad.ice@occ.ok.gov) or Suzannah Hafford (Suzannah.Hafford@occ.ok.gov).
