Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Geological Survey of Canada carried out a scientific project on potential impacts of natural gas exploration and production activities on shallow aquifers from 2014 to 2019 in collaboration with many partners, including Corridor Resources. This company accepted to provide access to their well pads located in the McCully gas field and Elgin area (prospect field for condensates) to drill shallow observation wells. These wells were used for different purposes, including water and rock sampling, and geochemical monitoring was carried out over three years. This report documents the decommissioning of 11 observation wells, whose depth varied from 39 to 80 m.
