OWA - Career Opportunities

The Orphan Well Association (OWA) is an independent non‐profit organization that operates under the delegated legal authority of the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER). Our funding comes from the upstream oil and gas industry to abandon and reclaim orphan properties. Orphan properties are wells, pipelines, facilities and associated sites which have been left behind by defunct or insolvent companies and are designated as orphans by the AER.

The OWA is searching for two qualified individuals to join our team. Both positions will report directly to the Director of Operations and will be based in Calgary but will require occasional visits to review field operations.
