President, Well Abandonment Specialist

Reputation is everything and Leah has spent nearly two decades building hers in the oil and gas industry by consistently delivering quality work, utilizing an abstract-thought process that identifies unique value-based solutions, and her ability to create positive working relationships between her clients and the government for the benefit of all parties.

Leah’s approach to well abandonment utilizes her extensive experience and education in both government and private sectors, combined with her drive to continually understand the intent of rules to provide better well abandonment solutions. While she brings a light-hearted, upbeat approach to her consulting (and sometimes a sugary snack or two…which she’ll share), she always provides high quality solutions that provide real value and are based on fact. This approach creates long-term results for the benefit of both her clients and the environment.

Of course, guiding Leah’s approach is her core belief around well abandonment:

Abandoning a well is the most important thing you’re going to do to it. When all is said and done, you need to make sure that you’ve done everything possible to leave the well in as safe a space as possible and not contaminating the environment around it.”

Where out-of-the-box thinking creates realistic, viable solutions

Abandonments are really easy, until they’re not, quickly becoming uneasy and complicated with operations to environmental hiccups. Manaka solves these problems associated by creating efficiencies and cost savings for oil and gas companies. Not necessarily the sexiest aspect of the upstream market, but one, if not the most important aspect in a well’s lifecycle.

Don’t wait for your abandonment to become uneasy. Rely on Manaka to proactively remove complications and costly operations, environmental, and policy issues, leaving your well environmentally sound and compliant with government regulations.


Develop a valuable solution that supports you in avoiding potentially costly operational issues. After all, brute force isn’t always the right answer.


Keep the environment protected as we design a solution that meets regulation for the long-term benefit of both people and the planet.


Ensure your well abandonment solution meets the intent behind the rules and is aligned with your regulating body.
