The number of deserted oil and gas wells in Kansas blossomed during the past 5 years to 22,000. A Kansas Corporation Commission annual report revealed a fund created in 1996 to finance plugging of wells to be inadequate if the objective was to keep pace with demand for plugging. Anadarko Petroleum said late on 30 June that it has tested more than 4,000 active oil and gas lines and plugged another 2,400 inactive ones per a state order issued after a fatal home explosion in Firestone, Colorado, in April.
