In 2013, less than a year prior to sanctions imposed against Russia:
Vladimir Putin is encouraging Exxon and Rosneft to start their new partnership off with a bang and head for the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Louisiana Shares Texas’ Abandon Well Problem

Texas TribuneAbandoned Texas oil wells seen as “ticking time bombs” of contamination

” . . . Not every abandoned well threatens groundwater. But in some oilfields, they “can be ticking time bombs,” said Ronald Green, a hydrologist at the Southwest Research Institute, a private research organization in San Antonio. And as boom-and-bust cycles continue across Texas drilling fields, walling off water sources from potential contamination will only get harder.
