Amanda Veazey, Formerly of Seneca Resources Company LLC, Brings to the NGO More than Two Decades of Experience as an Environmental Advisor and Geologist



Bozeman, MT– Jan. 31, 2023 – The Well Done Foundation (WDF) today announced the appointment of Amanda Veazey to the new position of Vice President, East Coast Operations, according to WDF founder and Chairman Curtis Shuck.

“Amanda has had a passion for helping to solve the orphaned and abandoned well issue for quite some time and brings a tremendous amount of experience to our team at a critical moment for the Foundation as we grow our operations in the East” Shuck said. “Her industry, regulatory and environmental background is exactly what we need as we provide critical methane measurement and monitoring services, in addition to managing our own orphan well plugging and abandonment projects”.

Veazey comes to the WDF after 15 years as an environmental geology advisor and geologist for Seneca Resources Company LLC. Prior to that she was a consultant in Houston, Texas, with Four Star Environmental and ERM, where she assisted and advised clients on environmental regulatory compliance.

“I’m excited to be joining the Well Done Foundation, with its nonpartisan balance of conservation and science,” Veazey said. “There’s a lot of work to be done in the eastern part of the U.S. to mitigate the orphaned well situation.”

Veazey will direct methane measurement and monitoring and orphan well plugging and abandonment operations in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, and Louisiana, where WDF currently is active.

The “Well Done Process” is a multi-step initiative built upon public and private partnerships.  WDF identifies high-emitting orphaned and abandoned oil or gas wells and then qualifies them through a rigorous measurement and monitoring regiment. Through partnerships with regulatory bodies and landowners, WDF develops a plan to plug the wells and restore impacted surfaces areas. Funding for each project is made possible through corporate or individual sponsorships. WDF initiated talks with the State of Pennsylvania in 2021, when Veazey became involved through her capacity at Seneca.
