CALGARY- The head of Alberta's Orphan Well Association says the likely failure of Sequoia Resources means a large number of the Calgary-based company's sites will be added to its files.

All of Sequoia's operating licences were ordered suspended after the privately held oil and gas company warned the Alberta Energy Regulator late last month it was ceasing operations ``imminently.''

The AER says Sequoia owns licences for 23-hundred wells, almost 200 facilities and nearly 700 pipeline segments.

Lars De Pauw, executive director of the Orphan Well Association, says that list doesn't include hundreds more Sequoia wells where production has been stopped but the surface hasn't been restored.
