What do we do with abandoned oil fields?

    Generally, nothing. The wells are “plugged and abandoned” according to normal practices. There may be required environmental cleanup of stuff on the surface. In a few cases underground wells could be used for storage of surplus natural gas, refined products, etc., but in general a fully abandoned well would not be used in that way, I think.
