Florida DEP releases RFI to Review Well Workover Technique

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) is seeking to immediately retain an expert or group of experts with relevant experience in the areas of geology, groundwater hydrology, oil and gas exploration, or oil and gas well workover procedures, including hydraulic fracturing.  FDEP will require an expert report to assess a well workover technique, new to Florida, involving an enhanced acidation procedure.  The procedure occurred at a well in southwest Florida, south of Lake Trafford in Collier County in late December 2013.  The FDEP will request an expert report to be developed by December 31, 2014. The report will address whether the procedure performed at this well posed any threat of groundwater contamination, given the geology and hydrology in the area and the design of the well.
