     Abandonment Costs Order Application

     16.610(1)  If a person has conducted an abandonment of a well and a
working interest participant in the well has not paid its share of the
abandonment costs, the person who abandoned the well may apply to the Board
for an abandonment costs order to be issued against the party that did not
pay.

     (2)  An application for an abandonment costs order must be made in
the form established for that purpose by, and obtainable from, the Board
and be accompanied by the fee set out in section 17.010.

     16.620(1)  If a person has applied for an abandonment costs order and

interest participant and has been unable to do so, it may apply to the
Board for reimbursement for the non-paying working interest participant's
share of the abandonment costs.

     (2)  An application for reimbursement must be made in the form
established for that purpose by, and obtainable from, the Board and be
accompanied by the fee set out in section 17.010.

     16.630   The Board may charge the fund for the costs incurred by the
Board in investigating working interest participants.
