The Bureau of Safety & Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) has awarded Promethean Energy and Endeavor Management two contracts for the decommissioning of nine orphaned wells in the Matagorda Island area, in federal waters approximately 12 miles off the Texas coast.

Promethean has been awarded a five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to conduct the decommissioning. Endeavor was also awarded a five-year contract, in order to support BSEE with project management and oversight of the orphaned infrastructure.

“President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is providing critical funding to help us remove these serious hazards to safety and the environment,” said BSEE Director Kevin Sligh.

This contract is partially funded by President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law through a recently announced $64 million commitment by the Biden-Harris Administration to address orphaned oil and gas wells on public lands.
