In the Alberta Peace, while Wiebo Ludwig and others continue a protest near a sour gas well not far from their homes in the Hythe area, both the energy company that owns the well site and the provincial regulator say it meets all legal requirements.

David Cassidy, a land manager with Canadian Superior Energy, has told the Edmonton Journal he has been speaking with the Ludwigs on behalf of the company.

He described the conversations as "cordial" but would not go into detail about what was said.
He did say, Canadian Superior has all the necessary permits and adheres to all government standards and the Energy Resources Conservation Board agrees.

Spokesman Bob Curran has told the newspaper the board has inspected the site on a number of occasions and because of the Ludwig’s concerns it has made more visits than usual.

According to the board, the well site represents no risk to human health and it contends there is nothing illegal about it.

The Ludwig led group disagrees, and started the protest Sunday, when test flares began at the site.
Ludwig has argued for years that sour gas wells have caused medical problems for his family and livestock at their Trickle Creek farm.
