Due to the increase in defunct company files that are being sent to the OWA, the OWA
is establishing a process for receiving defunct company files. The OWA requires files to
be sorted in the boxes and the boxes clearly labelled with contents by well files, surface
land files, mineral land files, contract files and engineering files. A list of the box
contents is requested whenever it is available.
Parties delivering file boxes to the OWA must contact our office first to make arrangements
for the OWA to receive them. Once arrangements are made to receive file boxes, they can be
brought to the loading dock of Centennial Place, West Tower, where an OWA representative will
meet the courier to facilitate delivery of the files to the OWA storage area in the building.
The loading dock is accessed from 4th Street SW between 2nd and 3rd Avenues.
